What are the thoughts and opinions on using Google Drive as a substitution for an actual notebook during Work on Writing?


What age are the students you work with?

Just my opinion . . but maybe you could do google drive once/twice a week. This is, of course, a different type of writing, with spelling and grammatical suggestions.

Not sure about your state, but our state test requires kids to write on paper–so we want them to know the benefits of both.
