Sept 29: Save to Google Drive Extension
Save to Google Drive is a perfect example of the Collect element of the C4 Framework – providing a fast and simple method of gathering and organizing all sorts of data into one place. Students can use this during the research process, or you could use it as a tool for gathering instructional resources. A collaborative way to use Save to Google Drive would be to create a shared folder where stuff gets saved and is available to everyone sharing the folder.
- Go to the Chrome Web Store and search "Save to Google Drive."
- Select the extension from the list and click the "Add to Chrome" button.
- You should now have a Drive icon in your toolbar. You can start saving by selecting the icon when you are on a website you wish to save, or by right-clicking on an image and selecting "Save to Google Drive" from the list of options that pop up. Note: To change the destination folder in Drive, right-click on the toolbar icon and go to options. From here you can specify which folder you want to save to, as well as your prefered file format.
