How I Use It
In the science classroom group work is very common. So, I will have my students use google drive as a way to collaborate on work and projects. For example, for a group project one student in the group will use google drive to create a google slide and share it with the rest of the group. Then all members will contribute to the slides simultaneously using their own devices. If they don't finish in class they can complete it at home because everything automatically gets saved to the drive which is online.
My Take
I think this a great tool to use because it is so easy to access anywhere all you need is internet. This is also great for those students who need help with organization because everything is saved online. Overall, this is the best tool I have used and seen for collaboration. Nothing is easier than collaborating using the drive.
