Google Drive gives all users 5 gigabytes of cloud storage to start. A user can get additional storage, which is shared between Picasa and Google Drive. In our schools each and every user has unlimited cloud storage since our district subscribes to G Suite for education. 

Google Docs (now housed in Google Drive) is a free, Web-based office suite and data storage service offered by Google. It allows users to create and edit documents online while collaborating in real-time with other users. Google Docs combines the features of a word processor and spreadsheet application with a presentation program.

Google Forms and Google Drawings have been added to the Google Docs suite. Google Forms is a tool that allows you to collect information via personalized survey or quiz. The information is then collected and automatically connected to a spreadsheet with the same name. The spreadsheet is populated with the survey and quiz responses.
