How I Use It
As a teacher, I have thousands of files and hundreds of folders for various classes. I have moved all of my digital files to an online format using Google Drive for storage and organization. What I love is that I can create an entire curriculum online and share the folder with my students, so that they can access the worksheets and handouts anytime, either to simply read or to print out. I can adjust the sharing settings so that students can view only, leave comments or edit. I also use Google Drive' sharing function to collaborate with colleagues across the state. We can even work on a document simultaneously from two different work locations. My students have the capability to do this as well, which makes group work possible without having to meet in person.
Teachers need to be able to access and organize massive amounts of paperwork, both in digital and hardcopy. Google Drive enables me to store all my files for all my classes online, which makes them instantly available in a clearly organized system. Not only is it simple to reorganize and rename files and folders, but I can access my work from any computer or device with internet access, since Google Drive has an app as well as web-based access.
