Google Drive breaks down the walls of school allowing collaboration and creativity to go beyond the 8 to 3 school day.

How I Use It
I began using Google Drive at the elementary level this year. In one classroom, fourth graders work collaboratively to create a field guide about the trees along our nature trail. In grade 5 students use Google Drive to create slide show presentations for their Aspirations project. In grade 3 students create their poetry anthologies. This is the first time our students have had a way to access their files at home, which has created new opportunities and interest for both students and teachers! The collaboration piece is exciting, but with that comes a need to do a good job with digital citizenship skills and to be constantly reminding students how to use an online collaborative space in a responsible way. Great teaching opportunities!
My Take
This is a great tool ,which works on multiple devices and locations as long as their is connectivity.
