This is what my Teacher Dashboard homepage looks like. It lists all of my classes and make it very easy to access the specific class I want. After clicking on a class I can see each student and all of their folders. I can then click on a specific folder and see every item in their folders along with when it was last edited. If I click on a document a new tab will open up within my chrome browser and I will have access to it. This is an excellent tool to keep track of student progress.
The most productive part comes when you make a copy of a presentation, document or spreadsheet from Google Drive and place it right in each students Spanish folder. It makes the classroom paper free, because each student gets their own copy. I now can review their work before they hand it in as well as monitor student progress on the work. Teacher Dashboard has been a huge help when organizing work to give to students. I now know exactly which handouts students have as well as what work they have done on their handouts.
