What's New in Version 4.2017.43506
Thank you for using Google Drive. This version fixes bugs and makes improvements to the app's performance so that you can access and share files quickly while on the go.
Great for schools to use
I can easily check in with my students by creating "shared" folders. I have my own folders for each class hour I teach and each student has their own "shared" folder to me.
Every assignment is to be done in this shared folder which I can access on my own screen and communicate via comments without standing over their shoulder. This gives accountability that students are on task and not hopping to a new browser, auto saves their work, folders can be shared/viewed by parents so parents know if their student is up to date with assignments, and gives me the luxury to have a paperless system-no more student claims of "I turned it in!".
Clearly I like Docs as a result of teaching Langage Arts but we use slides, and students have their own websites by using "sites" which we use for facilitating student led conferences. This helps students be better prepared for future job interviews and practice presentation skills.
The accessibility to view past versions of work is key to know when edits have been made to projects and lets students easily collaborate for group projects. I am SO GLAD our school has chosen to use Google Drive. I feel it's the best fit for both teachers and students to interact in this era that combines education and innovation.
Google pulling ahead.........
Looks like Google is emerging as the dominant multi-mode program when you consider how many applications they have that allows any person to accomplish most every task most people need to perform both personal and business tasks. I just spent 2 hours reviewing many apps in Google’s arsenal and didn’t see all of their programs, but the ones I did see were solid, well-thought-out, easily learned & very simple & fast to import data from the apps I’ve been using forever, into their much more useful and helpful set of programs. It’s great to have one app that has many layers of useful apps which all work in unison, saving time and many steps it took the old way, as I switched from app to app cutting and pasting data from one to another.
Great platform Google!
I’ve been using Google Drive for around 5 years now and I’ve only had positive experiences with it. I mainly use it as a sort of library now to store various PDFs, articles, and writings that I want to easily access or share with others.
For the longest time I used it for collaborative spreadsheets to manage data with my peers or to centralize a lot of information into one file that could be easily accessed by others. It worked well and the best part of it was that it was free.
I’d highly recommend this to any college students that want to centralize their course work or notes that do not use iCloud Drive. I use both for my work and it makes everything so much easier to keep track of and access in an instant if needed.
I’ve also used it for my tutoring since I can see the information people are struggling with without having to make time for an appointment. It enables quick feedback in many different forms. The possibilities with the tools they provide you with are endless.
This is an app that is definitely worth the download for anyone seeking to improve their productivity and ease of access.
