Reflection: Online Resources Writing is Collaborative - Section 1: Starter


I am fortunate that my district has provided each secondary student with their own gmail account and access to a Google Drive.  This is an amazing resource for our students to use.  They can use applications that are similar to and compatible with Word, PowerPoint, and Excel free at home (The Google equivalents are Docs, Presentations, and Spread Sheets) 

No only do they have access to their work at home, they can also collaborate with other students from the comfort of their homes.  Speaking as a Mom, it is such as great thing to know that my son can get his group project done without me having to drive him all over town!

If you have the ear of any of the technology movers and shakers in your district, have a discussion about Google Apps for your students, and see if you can put this powerful tool to use for your students.
