Do you have them collaborate with others at the same time on a project? Any ideas or examples to share? Sign in to vote!

A history of revisions can let the teacher see what student is working on the doc when- very handy. You could obviously also do this with a student remotely from home; leave comments to student papers submitted (drafts) through google docs, etc. Sign in to vote! Posted 5/26/2013 2:14pm Meg King-AbrahamK-6 Technology Specialist I have done a few things with fifth-graders this year. They used Google presentations instead of Power Point for a research project, then shared with a peer who gave editing comments. Pairs have worked collaboratively on a drawing about a city. Students find facts about a state, change half into false statements, then share with a partner, who has to detect the "lies." I have also used forms to create a scavenger hunt from photographs I took. You can see an example on my May 8th blog post at megkingabraham.blogspot.com Sign in to vote! Posted 5/31/2013 11:24am HollyHigh School English Teacher I use Google Docs with all my classes, everyday. My students create documents when they assignments are given and share with me. I am able to guide students while they write (using the comment feature), not just evaluate it at the end. I spend a lot of time having great conversations with students about writing. It has really opened up the classroom and helped me teach writing on a whole new level. Sign in to vote!

The ease of students sharing work with the teacher and the teacher being able to use the comment feature has been very valuable. Sign in to vote!
