    All subjects need to teach students how to search for, analyze and utilize digital information within the subject area. This is where students will be getting info until someone pulls the plug or locks them in a bookmobile.

Diigo EDU School Account Admin Questions - 98 views

  • Gil Anspacher
     
    I am setting up Diigo for our school. The EDU accounts seem more class/teacher based. But as a tech integration person, I want to set up a Diigo account for all of my students under one EDU account and then set-up groups for each class and give teachers admin roles in those groups. Luckily we are a small school of 108 students and 10 teachers (IB: MYP/DP). I have an EDU account all set-up and ready to go. Any advice how best to approach this? Any chance of GoogleApps integration coming? That would make it so much easier.

    Yes, I read that. But it does not mention how to deal with teachers. In a perfect world, I could upload a csv with groups for each student and then a csv with teacher admins for each group. For now, I am seeking how to put teachers into the system under our EDU account without having each teacher sign-up individually and each request an EDU account.

    Thanks!

    And if they did this through Google Apps integration, it would be so easy to implement. Google Apps seems like the most viable conduit for bringing together all of these EDU services that are critical tools to the process we have developed for our students.
