Tech Tip Tuesday: Student Emails

Today's tip is going to be super quick, because we started school yesterday, and I am one busy lady!

Have you ever found a really cool website you wanted to use with your class, but it required individual student email addresses? I found the answer last night. 

Step 1: Go to Gmail.com and create a Gmail account for your class. (I used mrsdoyle5th@gmail.com)

Step 2: When signing up your students for whatever website you are using, enter this email address followed by + and a number. (For example, mrsdoyle5th+1@gmail.com, mrsdoyle5th+2@gmail.com, etc.)

Gmail ignores anything after a + in an email address, and sends all correspondence to the original email address.

Easy as pie!
