Learning How

Getting Started with Google Drive

The Google Drive Help Center is full of user-friendly resource pages with step-by-step directions on getting started with Google Drive and other tools.  Some helpful Google Drive start-up resources include:

Although these video resources are made for students to learn how to navigate their BCPS Google Drive, teacher Google Drives work the same way.  These videos can be accessed by any BCPS staff member to learn how to navigate their BCPS Google Drive, create and manage Google files, or set the most appropriate permission level when sharing files with other staff or students. 

Google Drive and Schoology

Google Drive is fully supported by our Learning Management System (LMS) Schoology.  Teachers can use the Google Drive Resource App in Schoology in order to easily access and upload files saved to Google Drive.  Integrating Google Drive with Schoology also allows teachers to utilize the Google Drive Assignments App to streamline the process for students to access, complete, and submit Google assignments all within Schoology.

Users will need to be logged in to Schoology for direct links to work.
