Welcome back to school! So, let's guess that you haven't looked at Tynker in a few months. Let's get you started for a fresh new year of Tynker
Step 1: Archive last year's classes:
Do this by going to your My Classes Tab, and clicking the three dots in the right corner of the classroom. NOTE: this will not delete student accounts you created last year. It will preserve any progress and projects they have created, so far.
About Deleting Old Classes: Remember that Tynker saves student mastery progress and projects. Unless you have made some error- there is almost no reason to delete an old class. Archive it instead.
Step 2: Create a NEW class:
Follow the funnel to create your first class for the Fall:
Option 1: For Returning Students- Join Code
a. You don't have to create new accounts for these students. Simply choose "How Can Students Join?"
b. Give students the Join Code (write this on the board):
c. [In Student Dashboard] Have students log in the way they did last year. In the Student Dash, have them go to the tab: My Classes. Have them click Join a Class in the top right:
Option 2: To Create New Student Accounts:
a. Go to your Students Tab in your Class:
b. To Avoid Uploading CSVs- use the left button and Add Students:
Adding Students with Google Option:
Simply paste or type in the student Google Account:
BONUS - you can add as many rows as you need- making uploading CSVs unnecessary.
Adding Students with Tynker Accounts Option:
Same as above, type or paste in student names, usernames, and passwords:
BONUS: You can also add multiple rows here, making uploading CSV unnecessary.
NEW FEATURE: You can auto-generate usernames and passwords for privacy and simplicity.
Step 3: When you're done adding- click Add Students
