Google Drive has enabled Google Add Ons and there are some that you and your students will want to enable right away. Others may appeal more to professional developers or those who work remotely.

Way of a Warrant
Requests for user information from governments around the world are up 120 percent since 2009: http://goo.gl/11v9LP. Often these requests come in the form of a warrant from a government agency in the U.S.—here’s a video showing how we protect users’ information from excessive requests, while also following the law.
“Here’s a question. How do I avoid this, if possible, and what do others do in this situation…or is this the following example a feature request for Google to ponder?…… Situation: I’ve created a folder I share with my students, giving them the ability to edit; however, I have found that students have been accidentally moving items out of the folder (and into their own drive) making life annoying for others who needed to access this file and who don’t see the file anymore because someone moved it out. Is there a way, or should there be, to allow students to edit documents, but LOCK the file from moving? I know I could not give them editing rights, but then this defeats the purpose of collaboration on a document. Or am I missing something???” – posted by +Shawn Skalinski
