Sign Out of you didn't know this!

A colleague of mine called my attention to this a few weeks ago.  Disconnecting your school Google account is essential.  In fact, it is a great digital citizenship skill for your students too!  When students or staff sign-in to their accounts, they should disconnect their accounts after use.  I recently had students move their seats around, but before they moved I taught them this trick!

Step 1:  Select the Hot Dog/Hamburger Icon

Step 2:  Select Settings

Step 3:  Disconnect your Google Account

Step 4: Disconnect account

Why would I want to do this?

By disconnecting your Google Account from a device, this stops Chrome from syncing to your Google Account.  If you work in a school district like I do, it keeps you account synched to specific devices throughout your district.
