How I Use It
Used in conjunction with Edmodo, this makes teaching literacy in the computer lab or a 1:1 environment easy as long as you set up the norms first. We use this for close-reading handouts, group presentations, and classroom discussions.
My Take
Google Drive allows students to create collaboratively in a synchronous or asynchronous environment. This tool makes group work easy for both student and teacher. The "View Revision History" tool makes it easy to tell who did hte work.
