Using Google Apps for Student Portfolios in #PhysEd – Part 2

As we continue our journey on using Google Apps for Student Portfolios this week we will look at how you can harness the power of Google Drive from your mobile device.
In our last post on using Google for Student Portfolios we learnt how to Create & Organize Folders, Share & Comment on files. All of these things can also be done from your mobile device.

Google Drive Workflow for Creating Portfolios

The Google Drive app available for IOS & Android is the perfect companion for all those #PhysEd teachers out there looking to create meaningful student portfolios. Below is a video showing a typical workflow for using the app to add photos/videos to shared folders for student use.
You can download the Google Drive app here – http://www.google.com/mobile/drive

Using Google Sites for Portfolios

This is something that we will go into in further detail in a later edition of Using Google Apps for Student portfolios in #PhysEd but for now I want to bring your attention to the work of a close friend of mine, and the IT teacher at my school, @colingally for his take on how we are working together to use Google Sites in our school.
