How I Use It
I like using this product to keep our classroom organized and our classroom conversations and documents archived. The flexibility to hand an individual copy of an assignment to each child or to hand a common document for the whole class to edit with a click of a button, is incredible. I also enjoy using this product with my Science team. It archives our team work, keeps our team on the same page and allows voice from all participants! What I would improve about this product is to have the ability to more easily access student files in Google Drive and to more quickly grade those assignments. Going back to Drive and selecting a different file for student and for each assignment is frustrating. It is also difficult if you do not already have all of your students setup with gmail user names.
My Take
This is a great organizational and motivational tool. It motivates kids and keeps me organized. I love the ability to have conversations with my students and to student groups collaborate. Being able to communicate comments about student work and to hand it back to the student with the click of the mouse is incredible. Finally, this product allows our school to become better at creating digital archives of all student work. Doing this helps us show evolution of leaning and thinking.
