I’m a fan of The Google. Are you a fan of The Google? I’m also a fan of saying “The Google.” Anywhooooo…. google drive is all the rage right now, and rightfully so. It is a great tool to collaborate and allow access to all your work anywhere you are. Which is why so many schools are taking advantage of this free* resource.
*I say free only because it is technically free, however, districts can purchase some kind of extended version that allows personal school email addresses within google as well as access to things like google classroom.

As I was preparing for this week’s blog post I had a few particular teacher friends in mind. Google drive is a great resource but can be a little confusing to figure out at first. Which is why I put together this video explaining how The Google Drive works as well as a couple of ways to organize your drive for convenience.
Google Drive Tutorial
Of course google drive is a great resource to use in the classroom but it can be used in so many other ways. It is slowly becoming where I do all of my work online- personal, blogging, professional, etc. Cody and I have a folder with all of our budgeting spreadsheets, a spreadsheet with all of our friends and families addresses, and other things of that nature.
