The Tech Savvy Science Teacher: Doctopus - easily share documents with students via google and give feedback

Gerald Carey's insight:

Not just for the Science teacher!

This post will take you through the process of creating a template in Google Docs and sending it to students in your class. As it says, the good thing about this is that you retain control of the document and their ability to share their work.

There is 9 minute YouTube clip as well.

Free Technology for Teachers: Three Google Sheets Scripts That Help Teachers Save Time | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it

If you're a Google Apps user there are three Google Sheets (spreadsheets) scripts that I recommend trying. These scripts can help you save time on on sorting, grading, and assessing students' work.

Gerald Carey's insight:
