Use tables. Give each sub group or student a section to work on. Try sharing a presentation rather than a document. Ask student to write on a specific slide number. Either that, or use Google Forms and display the spreadsheet with all the contributions. Another option is Doctopus, a script that will allow you to create project groups rather than whole class assignments. 
 
Although I love Google Drive, I am having an issue with students working together in docs. When they work on a group project and multiple people are editing at the same time, the text and such constantly changes positioning. This gets very difficult to type and can be confusing, any help or thoughts?

I'm curious about this Verso app. Says it's coming out in Sept. Does someone have a copy? I'm seeing tweets about it. http://www.flipyourthinking.net/verso-app/

This is the type of reference we need, if only to know what version the browser is. Incredible learning tool.

Give this link to your Civics and English Teachers. Great "Media Literacy" ideas.

#throughglass we had no school today because of extreme temperate. It was -14 not including windchill. Take a cup of boiling water and throw it in the air. The kids thought it was cool.

What is the best social network management system? Or should I just stay with G+ and give up on all the rest?
