While looking through my Google Reader (actually my new Feedly account since they are getting rid of Google Reader) I discovered this blog post on Edutopia. It was written by Catlin Tucker who is a Google Certified Teacher that teaches 9th and 10th grade English. My school district does not currently use Google Docs, but we are in the process of integrating the new Office 365 programs which will allow several of the same concepts and ideas mentioned in her blog posts. I know several of my readers are Google Docs users and thought I would pass along this great information.
The blog posts comes from her presentation at the ISTE Conference. I appreciate when people blog about their presentations at conferences because MANY teachers do no get the opportunity to attend them and this provides a valuable way to share the ways they are integrating technology or using a strategy in the classroom. The post also provides how using Google Docs matches with the Common Core State Standards.
I highly recommend checking her post out if looking for ways to use Google Docs for writing.
