Rethinking Google Drive on the iPad


Awesome Presenter at EdTechTeam Summits

Rethinking Google Drive on the iPad




The iPad is well-known as an amazing creation tool, but with Google Drive’s “Open-In” feature on the iOS platform - the iPad has quickly become a collaboration device extraordinaire.


Google Drive is best known for apps like Docs and Slides, and these are great platforms for students to work collaboratively on documents and presentations. However, Google Drive has one under-used feature that offers a secret collaborative power . This hidden power of Google Drive sits in the layers of the “i” button.


Inside the layers of the  “i” button lives the “Open-In“ feature -  and this is where the collaborative magic happens. Almost any product you make on the iPad can be uploaded to Google Drive and housed in the cloud - but its what you do from there that is the magical part. I find most educators are not taking advantage of this “Open-In” feature of Google Drive - and if you have not used it...stop what you are doing and check this out! Here is how it works.


Two Amazing Collaboration Scenarios using the Open-In Feature:

iMovie:
Here is how students can collaboratively create an iMovie - using the Open-In feature.


First, students work together to plan a movie project. Next, they go out and gather footage and edit it  - and then save it to the camera roll. Before now, this individually produced footage would stay housed on just one device and combining it was a bit laborious.


That was 2012 - it’s 2014 and the power of Google on an iPad has changed! Now students can go to Google Drive, choose the upload button and then upload that iMovie from the camera roll into their Drive accounts - but wait it gets better. They can either add their iMovie to a shared folder or share it directly with a partner who can then use the “Open-In “ feature and open that shared movie on their own device. This effectively allows for the combining of footage and the production of a collaborative iMovie. Voila - collaboration in iMovie - not just the regular Google Apps.

Book Creator:
First, students create their own chapter of a book in Book Creator. Next, they choose the option to export it as an ePub and then choose the “Open in” selection.




That is when a student would choose to upload their chapter to a shared folder on Google Drive.


Next, the teacher or Book Creator App Captain (a student assigned to all tasks and assistance involving Book Creator) would select the “i” button on each chapter submitted. This would give way to  the  “Open-In” feature.  The next step would be to select Book Creator and start combining each of the uploaded chapters into one big class collaborative ebook.




With the recent Book Creator updates - that class book can be uploaded as a movie and shared using YouTube or Blogger - making sharing out to parents even easier than before.


A similar scenario can be accomplished with almost any app on an iPad - so go ahead have fun use the “Open-in” button and redefine your classroom in ways that will turn students into collaboration gurus.

  1. When I want to export a photo or video from my camera role to my drive the google drive option does not pop up. What do I have to do to make this ap an export option? Also When I click on the "open in" option in google drive on a high quality video from my gopro I get a loading sign which goes nowhere. This has happened on both my iPhone and iPad. If I try to move a lower quality video I don't get the option to move it to my phones camera role. I would really appreciate any help on these issues!

    1. Adding photos and videos to Drive happens within the Drive app. Choose + on the upper right and you'll see "Upload photos or videos." Hope that helps! Not sure about the other part of your question, though.

  29. How many times have we heard our parents, siblings, relatives and everybody else say that we should be safer drivers? In all honesty, this is much easier said than done considering the fact that accidents on the road account for a lot of the injuries and fatalities reported in the country. Question is, should you take your driving training in just about any driving school?

    i'd powerfully advocate that you simply use the services of a professional driving instructor. it's accepted that having
