How I Use It
One way in which I've used google drive is to have students write position papers and then share them with me and their classmates. Another way is for students to add their data from an experiment to a class-wide data table. The possibilities are great for this website.
My Take
Depending on how projects are created, google drive can make things tremendously easier on kids due to the easy of sharing and saving. Kids can share their creations (papers, spreadsheets, presentations) with their peers and teachers and then are able to work from different locations, on the same task, at the same time- genius! Again, if you provide the right scaffolding and support, students can be super engaged while using this site.
