"In the past I have published a couple of guides to using Google Documents in the classroom. The problem with those guides is that they were made before the latest round of updates to Google Documents. Yesterday I sat down and built a new guide, Google Documents for Teachers. The 40 page guide (embedded below) is designed to help teachers who have never used Google Documents. This document is part of a larger project that I hope to complete this month. Please leave a comment if you have suggestions about how to improve this document."
"Quickly and easily digitize student work and build the resource for authentic assessment in your classroom.
Unleash the power and the flexibility of digital tools, without sacrificing the important work your students do in non-digital formats.
Rescue student work from the bottom of backpacks, trashcans, and filing cabinets and have it at your fingertips. Easy, flexible, authentic--a simply wonderful tool for teaching and learning.
And best of all? It's free for teachers "
