So in one of my recent posts I shared with you tips on using DropBox more efficiently. Today, I will share a link to some tips on using Google Docs more efficiently.
If you ever wanted or needed an alternative for some of the more expensive word processing programs, then you should know by now that Google Docs is a great alternative. Besides doing all the normal formatting and stuff that the others do, it also allows you to create citations on the fly. Meaning students no longer have to worry about making sure there is enough room on a page for footnotes.
Another great feature is the realtime collaboration. No, that does not mean that everyone is deleting each other’s work. Collaborators can highlight a passage, and make suggested changes in a pop up window that the leader can read and edit the passage as needed.
The article linked below shares tips on how Docs, in concert with Google Drive and Google Keep can help you create and manage documents.
So give the link below a read, and since I mentioned working “in concert”, here is Simon and Garfunkel in concert :LIVE in Central Park in 1981.
