Improved Collaboration with Students & Teachers
You no longer have to attach documents and save multiple versions. With Google Apps for Education, you can simply share a document, spreadsheet, etc with a person or group of people. Are you holding a meeting? Share the agenda beforehand so people can see the agenda and add agenda items and thoughts before the meeting. Everyone can have access to the document and add to it, simultaneously! You can also provide simple feedback to students. All you have to do is add a comment to the document and the students will see it!
Not only can you access you Google Drive from your personal computer, but you can log into Google from any computer! You can also access your drive files from any mobile device. I can't tell you how many times I've edited a document on my phone. The other great thing about Google Drive is that you can easily search for your files and create a simple organization system.
You can view every change that has been made to a Google document, spreadsheet, or slideshow with a few clicks. You can see who made what changes, and when the changes were made. This is especially helpful when you want to see what a student has been doing during class. Also, when you make comments you will have a record of all the feedback you've given.
