What is Google Docs?

Google Docs
is a free online word processor, spreadsheet, and presentation editor that allows you to create, store, share, and collaborate on documents with others. If you know how to use other word processors, spreadsheets, and presentation programs, you can easily use Google Docs.

Instead of emailing files back and forth between collaborators, Google Docs allows people to work on a single version of a document together online. The chat feature on presentations makes it possible to create a “permeable classroom” by bringing experts into a lesson to interact with students online. You can also create web-based surveys to collect information from students, teachers, or parents.

Google Forms  - An Intro and some tricks for the experienced user


1. If you are a "one" or "three clicker", make a Form that would be a good introduction to your class for the first day of
    school. Make ten or twelve questions, using as many types of questions as possible. Share with your neighbors or
    fill out your own From to be able to see some charts.

2. "Five clicker" students - max yourself out on some of the new techniques (grids or multipage forms), there are at least
    GCTs in the room to "geek out" with.
