Tool 4

I will admit that just a year or so ago I was very hesitant to embrace Google Docs.  I was happy to use the  Microsoft Suite on my computer and saw no real need or purpose to try anything new.  What a difference a year can make, now I find myself a little (or a lot!) annoyed when people use email to do things that better tools exist for, like sign up sheets for parties. I now use Google Docs on a regular basis, and so do my students.  We've used documents, spreadsheets, presentations and drawings all quite recently in class and to communicate with my colleagues.  I've used forms a few times, but need to remember that it is really easy to use to create and to embed!

  1. Couldn't agree more! I now do 98% of my work in Google Docs! In fact, I find that have to think to remember how to do certain actions in Word! I will say that when using my iPad, I find it easier to take notes in Evernote. However, it does require an account, so I don't think it is a good option for students. Hopefully, Google and Apple will start playing nicer now!
