How I Use It
All of my students have their own district created accounts. They are able to access them anywhere and generate written work on it, They can share documents with me or each other. . I like being able to create documents etc. and have them save automatically and be able to pull them up at school without having to save them to a Flashdrive etc. My co-workers and I frequently share lesson plans, tests and documents with each other. It is used for sharing on a district level as well.
My Take
I love Google Drive. I use it daily for myself and very often with my students. I love that my students can create a database of their written work that they can use at school or home and that their parents can access as well. It allows all of us involved to be able to see the students progress over time as well
