Google Drive from an educators perspective


If you use Google Drive for work/school, you will find that keeping all of your files organised, can get out of hand very quickly. As you add new items into your Drive, the files typically reside in the ‘top level’, without any folder structure. This can give the impression of a chaotic & unorganised space.

Overtime I have learnt that folders, are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Search, and smart folders like ‘Recent’ are your best friends. Use these wisely and you will never lose a file again.

Here are 3 rules and 3 tips, which will help you stay in control of Google Drive. (Thanks @missrubery: brilliant GAFE teacher, critical in the development of these ideas!)
