Last week a students said, “Hey Ms. Drasby can you help me?” “My dog was sitting on my lap and deleted some of the words from several questions.” It was a simple but time consuming fix to use the Revision History to fix and maintain the integrity of the students answers. I had to copy and paste the correct info from several different restoration time periods. While doing this it dawned on me how to prevent this from happening again by using a Google Slide to create the worksheet.
All one has to do is use the master editing mode when designing the worksheet in Google Slides. This hidden treasure will help protect the integrity of a worksheet from accidental erasure. It also limits the layouts if students need to add a slide to complete the work.
