Free Technology for Teachers: Five Essential Google Drive Skills For Teachers

Free Technology for Teachers: Five Essential Google Drive Skills For Teachers | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it

by Richard Byrne

 

"This school year I've worked with a few school districts that are using Google Apps for Education for the first time. A lot of what I have done with those school districts is help to get the teachers acclimated to using Google Drive. When I sat down to plan an upcoming Google Drive training session I thought about some of the essential Google Drive skills that teachers need in addition to creating documents, presentations, and spreadsheets. Here are five essential Google Drive skills that I think teachers and students need."

I just started reading this article (and have gotten nowhere near #100) and have already seen some very interesting things. If you, as the librarian, embrace this then model it to teachers I think this could end up being a powerful classroom tool.

I must not be reading the same article, because all I see is a list of features, not a list of ways to use Docs, etc. in the classroom.
