I haven't had much time to blog lately. We're on the mad dash up to winter break. I have been working with many classes to get students using Google Docs and Notebook and for the most part they seem to love them. They love:
- the collaborative features
- the ease of access, no more attaching files to email or server storage issues
- the user-friendly format
We discussed yesterday how information becomes more or less indelible once it hits the Internet. Students who wrote social comments in Google Docs on the first day learned that those comments stay online in the revisions section even if they were deleted from the document at a later date. So the message here is stay on task and school appropriate especially if you are inviting a teacher to collaborate on or view your work.
