A useful video tutorial here, just over 16 minutes long. It runs through the basics of using Google drive and how you can use it to collaborate with others. It also touches on Google Hangout.


I use Google Drive with my students as a writing space because I teach English via Skype. It suits our needs perfectly. Students create several folders e.g. some are homework spaces; collaborative areas such as wikis; creative writing pages and as a virtual space that we can jump into during the lesson to work on activities. It works for us. As a teacher I can dip into shared spaces at any time and guide and support learning which is a real advantage.

This is a really thorough tutorial and very timely as I'm currently exploring using Google Drive with students. Our dispersed team of Learning Technologists already use it for collaboration but there is not much use as yet by our academics and students. The ability to be able to integrate Drive with Google Hangouts is really powerful and has the potential to be a great tool for supporting Distance Learning.

Beth Dichter's insight:

This video not only provides an explantion of flipping and how to begin this process it also provides great resources (if you click on the Show More button under the description). There you will find links to four "great content curators" (these sites have content across many subject areas) as well as links to educational content creators (more focused on a specific area)  and a variety of websites that tend to post daily and you may want to subscribe to. The video also provides you with a "tutorial" of how to create a video if you want to flip your class. Thanks to Keith Hughes and HipHughesHistory to providing this wonderful resource!

Some ideas about flipping. There are various degrees of flipping and you can start small and flip quite successfully, with good results.
