Here are some tips from Allie
Create folders (or buckets) where your digital content belongs - think about organizing by activities, grade level, and subject area.
Primary folders in school drive - data student-specific, assessments aligned to standards (question and answer promptly), class decor (reference charts, decor ideas), data folder, master copies, parent engagement, and seasonal. Within these significant buckets are small folders more specific to strategies.
Don't download everything!
Purge your download folder once a week
Star folders as needed (current unit, lesson, or chapter)
Number our folders - essentials sorted A-Z by the name they go so that you want them to go in.
Daily essentials tab on bookmarks (email, LMS, exit tickets, attendance trackers, frequently visited sites) - right-click open all folders.
Organize by classes and type of assignment/folder - start your teaching buckets with college course buckets.
