Reflection: Lights, Camera, Action - Student Inquiry Lab Presentations (Part 5 of 6) - Section 1: Hook - Cue The Stars Of The Show


Our District Technology Team has had the foresight to create Google Drive accounts for each of the 22,000 students enrolled in the District, as well as each of our 950 teachers.  

In my opinion, the Google Drive Program provides state-of-the-art technology opportunities for our students to enhance their learning process while providing the platform to create, record, and present their education to the world!  My favorite aspect of Google Drive, in regards to my ninth grade students, is that it enables my students to collaborate from home on their group projects.  Prior to our access to this technology my students were forced to meet only when their parents could drive them to their group members' homes or rely on older siblings for transportation . . .  which, as you know, never works out very well.  By incorporating Google Drive into my lessons, my students are free to collaborate as their schedules permit from the comfort of their own homes.  Students get a kick out of seeing their partners' edit their projects in real time on their personal computer and being able to work back and forth on their group projects from remote locations.  

In addition, students can easily submit work to their teachers by "sharing" their final products by simply typing in the teacher's email address and pressing the blue share button.  Google Drive has empowered my students to collaborate and create in ways they were previously unable.  I also use Google Drive for individual assignments throughout the year which act very similar to Microsoft's Word, Power Point, and Excel, but offer the ease of assignment submission by simply sharing their work with a click of a button.

This is the second year that our District has offered access to this technology district-wide and I have found myself incorporating Google Drive into more and more lessons!
