Team Drive is the ultimate space for collaboration with google apps. It's saved me a lot of time managing permissions with my students, leaving more time for collaboration and learning.

Kids these days communicate differently – nobody questions that. They use their phones to chat back and forth in small bits, and, consequently, they don't like waiting or listening ‒ there goes traditional schooling. Meeting kids where they are has led me to practice virtual office hours with the Remind app.
