This 19 minute video is about Helpful Tips for Teaching Your ELEMENTARY Students How to Collaborate in Google Drive™. Google Drive™ is amazing for both teachers and students. When you mix in the collaborative editing element, learning explodes for children (and adults) of all ages! These tips have worked for me and the elementary teachers I have worked with throughout the past few years. There are many different ways to go about introducing your students to the collaboration feature within Google Drive so here are just a few tips that will hopefully help alleviate any panic or confusion your students or even YOU may face. Once you and your students have it down, your class will be able to create things beyond your imagination

Six Tips and Demonstrations are offered:

Tip #1: The Power of the UNDO button

Tip #2: Student Practice and Using a Table

Tip #3: Color Code Font Strategy

Tip #4: Revision History

Tip #5: Distributing One Shared Folder with Templates

Tip #6: Effectively Using the Comment and Chat Features
