Using Google Drive

I haven’t worked with the iPad in class as much as I wolud like to since the students don’t have their own. Peter lets me use the ones that he brings to the classroom. That means that I have used iPads in only one of my classes. The latest thing I did was to let them work on the same document in Google Drive. I shared it with them the day before and then in class the all wrote in the same document. They were in pairs and “translated” parts of a text from old Swedish into modern Swedish and then the could read the whole translation in the same document. I didn’t have to put it all together. They were all very comforable with the iPad. I don’t know if there has been any diffence it we had used computers but I think they cooperate better when they are using iPads since it’s easier to see what the other person is doing.

Well, there is not much more to say really.
