Free Technology for Teachers: The New Google Drive Activity Stream Shows You All Activities In One Place | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it

Beginning today Google Drive users have a new option for tracking activity on their files. If it hasn't appear already, a new ⓘ  icon will soon be appearing in your Google Drive home.

Gerald Carey's insight:
