This was very cool and easy to use. This will make my life a lot easier. Last spring, the other forth grade teacher and I were emailing back and fourth about our Welcome Packet. After a few times it got confusing as to which one the latest copy was. Google documents will take care of this. When I write something, I always ask someone to proof the paper. Now I can do this easily with Google documents. As my practice exercise, I wrote a letter to the faculty about a recycling program my school is doing. I sent it to some other people that can proof it and let me know if I left anything out. This is going to be great! I also did a spread sheet for a committee I am on. I have been putting off making a contact list. Now everyone can help with this. All I did was put the headings such as name, committee, address, home phone number, cell phone number, and email address. I am going to share the spreadsheet with everyone on the committee and have them fill out their own information. This is going to be great!
I can’t wait to use it in the classroom with the students. I work at a private school and it is hard for the kids to get together to work on projects. This will be a great tool to allow the kids to collaborate on a report or project. I think it will also be very useful to edit each others writing. I think it would also be neat to have a spreadsheet that is used as a checklist like what we are using for this class. When a student finishes a task they could check it off. That way, I could periodically go in and see where everyone is. I can see me using this in many ways with my students! I think I am hooked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
