General
How I Use It
All of the students at our school have a google account, which gives them their own Google Drive. All of their work is stored on their online Google Dive and they never have to save anything. It saves as they are typing. I share handouts, presentations, worksheets, etc. with my students. They can make their own copies, edit them, and share them with me. Nothing goes through email. It's all available through the Google Drive, which is free if you have a Google email account. The only technical issue that I have had is formatting errors when I try to upload a document that has a lot of graphics in it. Otherwise, it is great!
My Take
My classroom has become completely paperless. Google Drive allows me to share and receive everything electronically. Everything that I have done in the past on paper, I am now using Google Drive for.
