Share Resources the Easy Way with a Shared Google Drive Folder

Google Drive makes it easy for teachers to collaborate on resources such as handouts, assessments, worksheets, etc. By setting up a shared folder in a Drive, teachers can easily upload documents and see what else others have shared.

One great example of this is when teachers of the same course (say, 9th Grade Science) want to share quizzes, labs, assessments, projects, etc with each other. These teachers can upload their own work, and browse the work that others have uploaded as well.

  1. Create a shared folder. Open your Google Drive in a web browser and click on Create > Folder.
  2. Give the folder a name and click "Create."
  3. Check the box next to the file, and click the "Share" button at the top.
  4. Choose your collaborators, and give them the "Can edit" permission. Click "Send" when done.
That's it! Now you can upload files of any type into that Google folder. All files in the folder are automatically shared, so you don't have to share each one individually. Also, since you gave each person editing rights, your collaborators can also upload and access these files.

Have fun!
