Using Google Docs with Students

Article cross-posted from the RISTE blog

Like many districts, our teachers and staff members have so many things on their plates that finding time to offer Professional Development is becoming increasingly difficult. In an attempt to offer more flexible and accessible PD sessions, we are just starting to use Adobe Connect to host and record short webinars for staff.

I just recorded our inaugural webinar for high school staff on "Using Google Docs with Students". Overall, I think that it turned out pretty well. I definitely still have a lot to learn and improve upon, but it wasn't too difficult to get to this point.

I wanted to share our initial effort in the event that the content may prove to be worthwhile to your own schools. I would also love to get some comments about how your own teachers are using Google Docs with their own students and build up some "best practices".
