I’ve shared these amazing features of Google Docs with numerous teachers in trainings I’ve done for Google Drive & Docs, and have also made a rather large detour in my Google Classroom trainings to share these tools, but I had never recorded them to post here. I made my screen recording back in November, and posted it to YouTube, but I neglected to share it here, until now.

Enjoy!

Google Docs & Drive provide classrooms with an amazing tool for productivity and basic word processing and presentations, but what if you want your students to dig deeper and be more creative? If it’s “Just a Chromebook,” what sorts of projects and products can your students create with web-based apps? Surprisingly, quite a bit.

In the presentation below, we’ll look at some advantages that Google Docs/Drive has over Microsoft Office, and also see some great alternatives to the Adobe Creative Apps out there. I’ve aligned all of these apps to the 4 different Depth of Knowledge levels out there for student work and projects.

While doing a little research this morning, I stumbled upon this great site that I had not encountered before:

https://www.google.com/edu/training/get-trained/

This resource from the Google for Education site has self-paced instructions on how to use and implement about 20 different Google services and tools, including Drive, Docs, Classroom, Chrome, Chromebooks, YouTube, as well as a module on Digital Citizenship.

We are using Google Apps for Education and Chromebooks ever increasingly in our region, in Utah, and in the entire country. They are amazing tools, and you can’t beat the cost. These resources will be a great help for those teachers who just like to get their hands dirty and teach themselves how to use these tools, and will be a great resource for my teachers after the training has happened that have those lingering questions that always come up.

Happy Google-ing!
