Tech Tip: Student Emails

Today's tip is going to be super quick, because we started school yesterday, and I am one busy lady!
Have you ever found a really cool website you wanted to use with your class, but it required individual student email addresses? I found the answer last night.

Step 1: Go to and create a Gmail account for your class. (I used

Step 2: When signing up your students for whatever website you are using, enter this email address followed by + and a number. (For example,,, etc.)

Gmail ignores anything after a + in an email address, and sends all correspondence to the original email address.

Easy as pie!
