Shared Resource Repositories

Google Docs makes it easy to share individual documents.  However, it is just as easy to share entire folders.  By sharing folders you can set up repositories of educational resources for your staff to share and contribute to.

For example, create a folder called "Grade 1" or "MS Math" or "HS Science" and then share that folder with the appropriate staff members.  Give the staff members edit rights so they can add their own resources, or make it view only if the resources will be collected otherwise and then shared.  Over time these shared folders will grow to hold a large amount of valuable resources, which will be especially helpful as new teachers are hired, or existing teachers change grade levels and subjects.
