Google Drive is a file storage and synchronization service created by Google. It allows users to store files in the cloud, share files, and edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations with collaborators.
You can store any type of file on Google Drive. You can keep pictures, stories, designs, drawings, recordings, videos – anything.
We use Google Apps to collaborate on things like projects, assignments, papers, or presentations. With Google’s real-time collaborative editing students can work together and at the same time on a word document, spreadsheet, or presentation. Google Apps have opened up a whole new way to collaborate on school-work.
The main file types we work with in class are docs, sheets, slides and forms. These are based around the Microsoft programs Word, Excel and Powerpoint. All have almost as much functionality as parent programs – with loads of additional benefits – the biggest one in my view being that work doesn’t go ‘missing’.
