General
How I Use It
I use this tool to help the students get data and resources in my classroom. I also use it to teach organizational skills and how to utilize their laptops/ipads effectively. The students are asked to create folders and share the folder with me to turn in any work from the classroom. They also access work through a folder I have shared with them that provides and example of how to organize yourself.
My Take
I think this is a great tool for all educators to learn to use. It can be used to teach students how to properly navigate and utilize the resources at their fingers. It also can be used to make information available to the students outside of the classroom. I've used this for student to communicated with me during any portion of the day and turn in work through an organized folder system.
