Google Docs

I am oozing with excitement! Ok, that might sound gross, but I can't help it that I get so excited when I learn something new. Many of you may be familiar with this - oh I forgot to tell you what it is. It is Google Docs! I have heard of this, but never knew how to use it in the classroom until Pinterest, which led me to a 4th grade blog, which got me to thinking I needed to learn more so I went to You Tube. That happens to me often start at one place on the net and end up somewhere else, two hours later! Anyway, back to Google Docs in the classroom. I learned from the blog that you can create forms that can be used to do assessments and track data. I will try to find the blog and post it for you. Then on You Tube,I found the how to create forms. This led my brain to thinking of a million other ways they can be used. I can post surveys or homework assignments on my class Edmodo. Students could possibly take a test right on the computer. The possibilities seem endless! Please post how you use Google Docs in your classroom. The You Tube video is posted here in case you want to check it out.


  1. The video didn't post for some reason. Let me try again.


  2. Google Docs is great! I just wrapped up my 1st year of teaching, and we use it at our school all the time. It's a great way to make templates for students where they can take the template, save it, and then fill it out. It's also great for collaboration during group projects (as students can work on the same assignment at the same time), and for teacher feedback (comment feature). Have fun!
