Here is a brief youtube clip that will help you better see how you can use Google Drive and what it can do for you. Also, here is a link to a document that was produced by Google to help you with the basic options and features.
When I was introduced to GAFE, it was the first thing that was taught. Rightly so, Google Drive is one of the main selling points for any teacher or school that is considering the implementation of GAFE. Google Drive in a school district allows for unlimited storage capacity. In my district, we have personal drives housed on a server that we could save files. We have limited access to these files through software called stoneware. There were limitations associated with this access. With Google Drive, you can access your files from any computer or any devise with ease.
One of the most powerful tools that is provided to you with Google Drive is the sharing option. If you want to share a document or file with someone the process is instantaneous. There is no need to use email as a means to share files. There are also options with the way that you want to collaborate with the person that you are sharing with. For instance, if you only want the person to be able to view your document, change the share settings. Google Drives inside a district account can also be protected by establishing limitations for who has access to the files in yours or your students drive.
Google Drive is a very powerful tool to help improve work flow, collaboration, and organization. I highly recommend it to any educator!
