After recording the latest episode of The #PhysEd Podcast with @JoeyFeith I began to think more about how I could go about really getting on top of my students portfolios especially in terms of which tool would fit best for me.
This year I have already tried EasyPortfolio, ThreeRing & Evernote as potential portfolio tools for the students in my program, and while each had its advantages, I also found them difficult to manage and at times error prone. I had been thinking for a while about how I could use Google Drive & Google Sites for this purpose.
So here begins my adventure with using Google Apps for Student Portfolios in #PhysEd. In the coming weeks I will be posting updates on my progress with this project and sharing tips on how you can use Google Apps in your #PhysEd program.
Create & Organize Folders in Google Drive
Doing this you will make sure that your drive remains clutter free and you are able to find your files easily. Once you have done this you also have the option of sharing this folder with other teachers, students, parents, allowing for easy collaboration or viewing.
Sharing Your Files
When sharing it is important that you set the permissions on the file/folder. Do you want people to only view, or be able to edit? Do you want it to be a public or private file?
