Using Google Docs in the Classroom

Hi everyone!  I’m excited to be participating in Bright Ideas again today!  This time, I’m starting a new video series on using Google Docs in the classroom.  I’ve used it in a few different ways, and I thought I’d share some tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way.  I also thought it’d be a good way for me to learn some new things as well.

Today’s video shares some basics on Google Docs.  I also show you how I use it to do online quizzes for my students.  I try to walk you through step by step so if you’re a first time user, you can follow along with the video.  I get a little tongue tied toward the end, and you can hear my dog running around in the background distracting me, so I apologize if I get a bit confusing there.

I plan on sharing how I also do a bit of automatic grading using the same system on a later post.  If you use Google Docs, or after you’ve tried this out, I’d love to hear some ideas/tips that you’ve found, or if you want to know if something is possible to do.  Be sure to follow my blog to see additional videos and other tips and strategies.  You can sign up at the bottom of this post.

Don’t forget to go through many of the other posts in this great linky!  I know it’s a bit daunting to see all of them, but that’s why we listed grade levels in the titles.  I’d love to hear your feedback on our new format and if you’re missing the hop portion!

I’ve spent the last 15 years teaching in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades, and working beside elementary classrooms as an instructional coach and resource support. I’m passionate about math, literacy, and finding ways to make teachers’ days easier. I share from my experiences both in and out of the elementary classroom.
