One of the many useful aspects of Google Drive (Docs, Sheets, Presentations, etc.) is sharing. For example, when working on a Google Doc you can share it to colleagues, students, friends, or to the general public.
Here are your options when it comes to sharing a Google Drive file:
- Your School or District (People at your school can find and access)
- Your School or District with the Link (People at your school who have the link can access)
- Private (default)
- Anyone with the Link can View
- Your School (District) Domain
- Your School (District) Domain with a Link
- Or share a link to a social network (Twitter, Facebook, Google +)
- By doing this you can give rights to individual people or groups to allow them to view and/or edit your Google Drive file.
- Share a Folder with student activity templates.
- Share a Google Doc file for letters home about events.
- Start sharing newsletters to send home.
- Have students share files to you or your students.
- Have students share a folder to you of their classwork.
- Have students share a folder as an e-portfolio of their work.
- Share files with other teachers on meeting minutes, ideas going forward, or any other collaboration and communication.
- This list will go on, expect another post on integration ideas.
