Google Docs is a free, web-based word processor, spreadsheet and presentation tool that allows you to create and edit documents from anywhere and collaborate with multiple people at the same time.
How Google Docs helps educators and students
- Access documents from anywhere
Students can work from both school and home since documents are stored securely online, All you need is browser and internet connection, no software version requirements.
Google Docs saves automatically, on a regular basis. Each change is tracked as a new revision. You can see exactly what’s been revised, by whom, and when.
- Collaboration gets students excited and engaged
After students invite you to their documents, you can review, comment, and grade their work at any time. Also, students can work together on projects and get peer feedback
- Writing for an authentic audience
Publish a document to make it visible to an authentic audience: parents, peers, and friends. You can even publish directly to your blog.
