    • What is Google Drive? 
      • Cloud storage for all your files
      • Ease of accessibility - get your files from any Internet-connected device 
    • Logging in: go to https://drive.google.com. Log in with your full PISD email address (for students, this address ends in @mypisd.net) and your network password. 
    • Storage Space
      • G-Suite (school) accounts are unlimited
      • Personal accounts are limited to 15G

      • Similar in that they are both "private"
      • To access H drive, you have to be in PISD network; to access My Drive all you need is internet

    • S Drive vs Shared With Me
      • S Drive - someone can edit, move, manipulate
      • Not 100% private

      • Shared With Me - on internet and has some levels of privacy
