The paperless classroom just became easier to achieve by adding new copiers to our technology team! The Xerox WorkCentre copy machines have a feature called Scan to E-mail that takes a document, scans it in, creates a PDF of the document, and sends to to you or anyone on the staff as an e-mail attachment! This feature is fantastic and allows teachers to convert mountains of paper quickly and easily to PDF files.
In our Google Apps for Education district, once paper is a PDF, the document can easily be uploaded to Google Drive and shared in the clouds with students to access anywhere, anytime.
For our #ipadacademy, the copier makes getting material into iTunes U so simple. Just a couple clicks and the PDF's are uploaded to the materials section of iTunes U, added as a post, and pushed out to students.
The Scan to E-mail feature makes a daunting task of either re-typing a document, locating a scanner, or taking a picture of the paper a distant memory now.
Check out this video to learn how to Scan to E-Mail and go green by creating a paperless classroom today.
