iPad X Google Drive X Student Portfolios

It has been too long since my last post...hopefully this one will be worth it.

With recent upgrades to the Google Drive app on the iPad, Google Drive is now a viable solution for student portfolios that can be created in their entirety on an iPad and everything that is created by a student can be uploaded directly to their Google Drive account to a "Portfolio" folder that can then be shared with any one of their teachers.

The Google Drive app now allows for creation of:

  • Documents
  • Spreadsheets
  • Folders
You can now also upload from the camera roll:
  • Images
  • Videos
Many PDF annotation apps also now allow direct upload to Google Drive, I suggest using Notability.

Below is a presentation and video tutorial that explains the process of creating, uploading and sharing within the Google Drive app on an iPad.  Enjoy!

I'll be talking more about using iPads in the classroom this summer at the EdTechTeacher Summer Workshops in Boston, Chicago & Atlanta.  Join us there!

  1. Thanks Greg, great post and very timely as our school integrates iPads in 2013.

    Also worth mentioning too that students can sync Notability to Google Drive. An easy way to back up work and then share as needed.

    Cheers, appreciate the presentation and video, will use with staff.
