New Drive Activity

As our district has rolling updates to Google, we will all notice this update at different times, but I wanted to do a quick post about a great new feature in Google Drive.  Google Drive will now have a button in the top right-hand side of your Drive menu that
looks like this:
This little gem could save you a ton of time!  When you click this icon a menu like the one below will appear showing you all the recent activity that has occurred in your Google Drive. Shared documents will demonstrate changes that were made to the document, who made them and at what time.  It also will show you when you made changes or updates.  
As teachers collaborate with students and colleagues and teams work on certain tasks this might be a very useful tool.  I like that the activity bar can be closed, minimizing the distraction of what someone else might be working on.  I see this new feature as being a great addition to the usefulness of Google Drive.  If you Drive has not yet updated, give it a dat or two and check back.  It will soon!
