Reflection: Submitting Essays Digitally and All That It Entails, Day 1 of 2 - Section 4: Students Continue Drafting

We had to create a plan B on the spot, which was for students to type on Microsoft Word and save it on a flash drive, if they happened to have one on them, or to email it to themselves as an attachment. I quickly gave them directions for this and had to help a few students email it to themselves during lunch.
