How I Use It
Lots of ways! But the best was having students share their work with me while they wrote lab reports. Then, I wrote comments and corresponded with them electronically as they worked. When it worked, it was amazing. Some kids struggled with the learning curve of working completely online.
My Take
Google Drive allows you to connect to your students inside and outside class. Save paper and increase the quality of interactions! Keep electronic copies of survey results, gather homework answers, share best examples with students, give meaningful feedback during the writing process.
