Google Drive Textbook in the Works

June 17, 2012

 My summer project is to create a textbook series that I'm calling Google Drive for Kids to teach kids and youth word processing, spreadsheet, graphics and presentation skills using Google Drive (Docs).  My target group is grades 5-8. The first 9 lessons are done (minus the assessment piece which is coming). If any educators have any resources or lessons they would allow me to include (with attribution, of course), I would be very much appreciative if you would share them. I have found no such textbook in existence and I very much need one for coming school year.  The textbook is very much incomplete and exists in its current iteration in my Google Drive.  It is very much a work in progress and is in its very early stages. However, I think you will be able to see my vision from in its current form. Any comments, ideas and feedback are MUCH appreciated. THANKS!!

P.S. I am also considering publishing it on or some other service.

P.P.S. If you have found such a textbook somewhere I haven't, I'd love some information on that too.

The early draft of my word processing textbook is available here. It's not yet complete so don't hurt me.
