Why you should use Google Docs in your classroom

 
  • Applications for documents, presentaions and spreadsheets.  Not all students have access to expensive applications such as Microsoft Office
  • For group work, you don't have to rely on one student saving the project and causing problems for the other group members if they are absent
  • Files are automaticaly date/time stamped, so there are no more excuses for late or missing work
  • It promotes collaboration and enables you to see the levels of contribution for each individual student, they don't even need to be in the same location to collaborate
  • No need for email attachments
  • You can create a paperless classroom and review the work anywhere you have an internet classroom
  • STUDENTS LOVE IT

You can't watch this on You Tube in school, but Commoncraft (www.commoncraft.com) created this video about Google Docs
