How I Use It
I used it to share documents with students and colleagues. Sharing offered opportunities for collaboration that emailing documents did not. Students were able to work together on assignments whether they were side by side or at another school. Being that the collaboration was real-time made it a plus. Assignments were saved on the Google Drive as well.
My Take
This website / app is outstanding. We basically used it schoolwide (probably districtwide) when rolled out our one to one Chromebook initiative. It provided the perfect opportunity for online collaboration on all levels. Our students used it not only to collaborate, but to save and submit documents. It basically made thumb drives a thing of the past. Way to go Google!
