A great resource.
Removing Shared Google Folders Can be Bad!

Removing a shared file is pretty straight forward - I remove it from My Drive but it should remain on the owner's drive. However, if someone share's a folder with your and you delete the file, it will go missing from EVERYONE's drive.

Have you run into this and how do you handle it?

There are many great networks out there that teachers are a part of. Some of them are virtual and exist in blogs, twitter chats and discussion forums, while others are face to face.  Some are structured and some are fluid and flexible. 

We know of some of these networks, but would love to shine a light on some of the ones we don't know about. Please feel free to send me an email or reply here if you would like to share a network with others as we try to help connect some of the great work that is happening across the CBE, the province and the world.
