10 Things Every Teacher Should Know How To Do With Google Docs - Edudemic

10 Things Every Teacher Should Know How To Do With Google Docs - Edudemic | Ict4champions | Scoop.it
Google Docs is a powerful word processing tool that many schools have adopted. As it’s similar to Microsoft Word and other word processing tools, most of its features are intuitive to use. However, in addition to completing many of the functions of a traditional word processor, Google Docs provides even more capabilities that can be invaluable to educators.
