Sharing and Collaborating
Once you have a document you MUST title it. After you can then share your document with anyone. If that person also has a google account then they can edit it (or just look) and collaborate with you if you want. More than one person can collaborate on the same document or anything else in your google drive.
You can also just share the item with viewing privileges so only you have access to editing.
*Note: GDrive Auto saves!
These are your basic apps that come with your school account.
- Google Search
- Where you can create, share and upload documents, spreadsheets, presentations and more
- Manage your own calendar, invite others to your meetings/events, and even see who is available when (assuming other teachers are using it, too)
- Easy to create websites hosted by Google
- Get together with colleagues and others to communicate easily through a message board or emails
- a digital address book

Use Google Forms to give students a pre-assessment at the beginning of the class. Quickly look at results to modify instruction as necessary based on the results. Give students at exit ticket at the end of class to see what they've learned.
Google Drive Interactive Tour
If you need to share documents frequently with the same people over a period of time, you will find that using folders will make the process easier.
Unlike the normal idea of folders, you can put a document into multiple folders at once in Google Docs (similar to how you can put multiple labels on one Gmail message.)
Ideas for using folders in the classroom
Create a normal folder.
Name it something that will make sense.
Share the folder with your students and give them only “Can view” rights.
Have your students click the email link they get to open the shared folder, making sure it has added the handout folder to their list of shared folders.
Now anything you add to the folder will automatically be available to the students in the shared handout folder.
For Assignment Turn-in
Have each student create a normal folder, name it something that makes sense.
Have them share the folder with you with “Can comment” or “Can edit” rights.
Now you drag and drop their shared folders into your own year and period folders to organize them.
Anytime a student needs to turn in an assignment, they simply add it to their turn-in folder for your class period and the document will now be available for you to access.
Your Turn - Create Folders
You're the Teacher
Create a folder called 2014-2015
Create folders for each subject or class period within that folder
Choose one sub-folder and create a folder within it called Assignments (you can create an assignments folder in each sub-folder later.)
Share the Assignments folder with your student giving them 'Can View' rights
You're the Student
Talk to your teacher and see what class or period folders they created.
Create a folder titled Your Name and the name of the class or period
Share it with your teacher and give them edit rights
You're the Teacher
After the student shares the folder with you, drag it to the appropriate folder.
Create an assignment within the Assignments folder
Create a Google Doc with a very short ice-breaker type assignment e.g. What I want to be when I grow up.
You're the student
Students copy the assignment to the folder you created, complete assignment and save it to the folder you just shared with your your teacher
Teachers, grade or comment on the assignments
