Tip #23: Sharing Files

Sharing files, links, and other information is easy using the J drive. Students can read information, but they can’t modify it. You can share templates, graphic organizers, lists of web links in Word, slide shows, and more. (If they need to modify it, they can save it to their own H drives.)

When you open My Computer, you’ll see your H drive and one marked “Shared on Fsstudents . . .” That’s the J drive. Open it up and you’ll see a folder for your grade level (K-4, 5-6, 7-8, or 9-12). You’ll notice that other teachers and staff have created folders to keep their work separate. You may create a folder for your use by going to File >> New >> Folder. You may copy or save files to that new location.

A note about sharing files: Once the students no longer need the file, please remove it. Retain the copy on your H drive or home directory for the next time you need the information.
