Tool #4



Google Docs is very easy to use and allows numerous people to work on one document.  This year while we've been working on English curriculum, the writers have been using GoogleDocs when we meet.  We're able to all edit and communicate on the same documents during our meetings as well as afterwards.

Below is a link to the most recent Google Doc that was shared during curriculum writing.

The way the iCoaches have used it for creating documents is exactly how it could be used in class.  The students can create and collaborate while sitting together or in the evening when they are no longer in the room together.  It also allows for messages to be sent.  A teacher and student could discuss revision or any other issue outside of class as well.
