Great for schools to use
I can easily check in with my students by creating "shared" folders. I have my own folders for each class hour I teach and each student has their own "shared" folder to me.
Every assignment is to be done in this shared folder which I can access on my own screen and communicate via comments without standing over their shoulder. This gives accountability that students are on task and not hopping to a new browser, auto saves their work, folders can be shared/viewed by parents so parents know if their student is up to date with assignments, and gives me the luxury to have a paperless system-no more student claims of "I turned it in!".
Clearly I like Docs as a result of teaching Langage Arts but we use slides, and students have their own websites by using "sites" which we use for facilitating student led conferences. This helps students be better prepared for future job interviews and practice presentation skills.
The accessibility to view past versions of work is key to know when edits have been made to projects and lets students easily collaborate for group projects. I am SO GLAD our school has chosen to use Google Drive. I feel it's the best fit for both teachers and students to interact in this era that combines education and innovation.
Best Back Up For All Types of Documents From Pictures To Important Files
I have been using Google drive for a while now sometimes I don’t even realize the pictures or files that I need are right there at the tips of my fingertips just by logging into Google Drive from anywhere and it has been a lifesaver more than once in terms of looking for something I needed and I find it! Also many moments and memories via pictures; I thought I had lost forever, but realize are stored right there safe and sound in my google drive! The safety and security are on point and overall...thus far Google Drive is Awesome!
It also alerts you for each and every sign in attempt on any device and periodically prompts user to verify and conduct security checks for device sign in and activity review ensuring that everything is done by you the user and also that only you have access to ALL YOUR Information. Top it all off, it’s absolutely FREE! No fees, as of yet, but even if they were to charge for this service it would be well worth the monetary cost, for the peace of mind it provides! THANKS GOOGLE DRIVE!!! Keep it Up! Much Appreciated especially by users who may not be as tech savvy as the newer generation of users! THANK YOU!!!
I love Google Drive!!! It is a very valuable tool. I use it hourly during the work week. I am able to jot down an idea on my phone, turn it in to a project at home, present it at work, assign it to my students, have them finish it on their computers and grade it all through Google Drive (and Google Classroom). It is impossible for me to forget my thumb drive, cd, or any other archaic storage device, because Google Drive is always there from any of the devices (my phones, iPads, Chrome Books, and generic school desktop computer, or another business computer). I rarely have trouble with formatting issues from one computer to another system and if I do, it’s minor. Where Google Drive fails a five star, in my opinion, is organization... especially when sharing files. I have files shared with me that I have no idea what is in them and if I tried to organize all of it, someone else could unorganize it. I rely on the search bar MOST of the time. But, that means I have to remember what I labeled something three years ago! Then, I will likely find something else equally good from a shared file I didn’t know existed that could have been used LAST week.
