Google Drive + Screenshots = Faster Feedback

When my students do their math homework and struggle with a problem, they often wait until the next day to ask me about it.  Occasionally they will email me with a jumbled message in an attempt to type algebra.  While these are not terrible options, Google Drive provides an even better (and faster) way for students to get help with a problem.  Now that my students are doing their homework on their iPads, this process is even easier!

When a student has a question about his work, he can take a screenshot on his iPad of his attempt at the problem in Notabililty, save the image to his Google Drive, and share the image with me (and preferably add a message asking a question about the problem).

When I get an email notification that a student has shared an image with me, I can give him feedback quickly by opening the image in Google Drive and inserting text comments on different portions of the image.  He will see these comments immediately.
