Google Workspace is a set of cloud-based apps that you can use to create documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and more.

One of the apps in Google Workspace is Google Drive.

Google Drive is a cloud-based file storage service that allows you to manage, organize, edit, and share files online.

Instead of being stored on your computer, files that you save to your Google Drive are stored in the cloud.

The cloud is a secure place on the internet where you can save important information and access it from any device with an internet connection, like a computer, smartphone, or tablet.

In this lesson, you will organize, share, and locate files and folders in Google Drive.

This lesson uses files for a community center fundraiser.

You will use these during the lesson to practice organizing files in Drive.

Or, you could practice the skills in this lesson using files you have already stored in Drive.
