1- Google Drive
Google Drive is one of the best cloud services offered for free. I use it every day to both store and access my saved files, to create graphics ( Google Draw ), create forms ( Google Forms ), and many more. Its synchronous collaborative features make it a ideal tool for group work and peer editing in the class. I invite you to check these awesome resources to learn more about how to use Google Drive with your students.
This is a great social networking platform for educators. I have been using it for some time now and found it really interesting. With Edmodo teachers can create and host class groups, post assignments, share learning materials and many more. Check out Edmodo for Teachers to learn more about how you can use Edmodo with your students.
Another great cloud storage service for teachers. I also use it on a daily basis and I love its instantaneous synchronization and the fact that I can access the files I have in my folder in my desktop from any device I use. I also have a section here in this blog with some useful resources to help you better tap into the educational potential of this tool.
I would be a mess without Evernote. This tool helps me organize my digital stuff in such a seamless way. It particularly helps me remember and act upon ideas, projects and experiences across my laptop, phone and iPad .
