If you have used Google Drive/Documents with students, you know that they can be incredibly powerful- single-sign on, cross platform, browser access, real-time sharing and collaboration, revision history, etc.  However, your Drive can get messy in a hurry, especially if you are sharing with 30+ students daily.  Yesterday Patrick Bryan at Neal Middle School and I recorded a video conference via Google Hangouts about a script called Doctopus that helps teachers manage assignments through Google Drive and Google Spreadsheet.  You can watch the Hangout here on our Media-Tech page.  Also on the page is a document explaining Doctopus step-by-step.

Have a look-see and share with your teachers.  Let me know what you think and what questions you have.
