What will I learn?

Google Drive is the king of the clouds when it comes to quick and easy access to files and folders from any device and any location. If you use Gmail and not Google Drive, you’ve got to take the leap! With easy file sharing and unlimited storage space for schools, Drive is a superb way for schools to start working towards a server-free future in the clouds. A quick note – Google Drive is YOUR personal space. Google has introduced Teams to manage shared and collaborative spaces. For collaboration and file sharing with students use Google Classroom, not Drive, as Classroom makes the whole experience better and safer.

What are you going to learn about?

You’ll learn about how to find your way around Drive and understand best practice around sharing and file management. You’ll also learn some lesser known secrets that make Drive even better than it already is – some real gems in there.
