How I Use It
Students collaborated on the draft of our school's policy regarding personal devices. I love the function that allows students to highlight areas of concern and comment to the side. This allows students to engage in a discussion focused on text evidence and explore each other's thinking.
My Take
I am so used to Word I forced us to use Google Docs in our school drive account. I like that schools have the flexibility to provide student emails and a document sharing forum.
