If you are using Google App for Education at your school (or Google just apps) and are looking for a collaboration space and place where your students can share documents and information with you, Google Drive is the best option. If you are looking for a place to house all your teaching materials where you can access it from wherever you are one of the other options might compliment Drive.

Being the Nerd that I am I have an account with all of these. I use them all for different purposes, and they keep my data separate and organized.

Keeping your data in the cloud ensures that the data is never lost in a hard drive crash, and it will always be accessible with an Internet connection, usually from any device. As a teacher this is extremely valuable.

Find the best option for you, and let me know what you chose and why…
