In this post we explore the potential use of a Google Drive shared folder and the Revision History within Google Docs for students and teachers completing longer writing tasks, assignments or coursework.
In this scenario we look at how teachers can organise the differentiated distribution of assignments/coursework to students using Google Drive, and how students can write their assignments in Docs, within a Google Drive shared folder . This means that the teacher can see the Revision History of a document to see drafts, redrafts and edits, or be able to print older edits and redrafts for evidence purposes, and give personalised ongoing feedback to coursework or assignments.
These tools are really useful features, especially for older students who are writing longer pieces of work over an extended period of time - allowing the teacher to provide feedback, oversight and support throughout a writing task. It is also great for a teacher to keep assignments organised.
Google Drive - the gift that keeps on giving!
