“Mrs. Smith, I can’t type on this document,” says the student.
“Click File, then Make a Copy,” says the teacher. Over. And. Over. And. Over. Again.
The conversation above has been repeated by GAFE teachers everywhere, and has led to the ever popular trick of changing the URL to ‘Force A Copy.’ Let’s be honest, modifying a URL is a ‘pro-tip,’ and is not a reasonable expectation of many teachers. This is the every teacher’s solution to this problem. Once sharing settings have been turned on, with the click of a button, the teacher instantly has a new URL to share with students on Classroom, E-Mail, Tone, or whatever other means of communication the teacher prefers.
