This is a way to encourage use of technology and go green at the same time.
Google drive helps kids to collaborate on writing. It also allows me to check on how they are doing as they complete an assignment, rather than wait until they are finished to note problems. Unfortunately, Google Drive only works as well as the technology at a school.
How I Use It
I assign collaborative writing assignments. It is great to see students encourage one another as well as critique the writing of their peers. Students can use templates that I create to complete and proofread assignments.
