More often, teachers and students are sharing documents via Google Drive. Last year was my son’s first year in high school and he was using Google Drive more often than I was as a blogger. It allows sharing of all types of documents, the teachers can get instant feedback on a class using forms maker, and photos and other assignments can be quickly and easily uploaded for grading.
