Jessica Luby, the 2013 NCHS Teacher of the Year, shares ways Google Drive can be used in the classroom to support collaboration, critical thinking, communication, and creativity. We are fortunate in Newton-Conover to have Google Drive at our fingertips. Jessica Luby has found some creative ways to use Google Drive with her students.
One way I use Google Drive throughout a unit is to begin by having students take a Google Form quiz to evaluate their own stance on misconceptions/controversies. As groups, they investigate the ‘real’ truths’ collecting data in a shared Google Document and create their own ‘questionnaire’ highlighting these misconceptions. They then videotape interviews from the general public (age variations included) and create one final section to their truths behind their questionnaire. This video is put into their Google video (set as private on Youtube) and shared with the class.
