Google Drive is great for teachers and students for many reasons. One of my favorite features is that it's accessed through the cloud. Cloud storage allows your students to work on their documents anywhere from your classroom, to their babysitter's house, to vacation in another state or country. All that is needed is Internet access!
There are so many ways to use Google Drive. In the below video, I will briefly introduce file management (organizing folders/files), sharing documents, and commenting on someone else's work. As a teacher, I find one of its greatest strengths of Google Drive to be collaboration.
