WHAT IS GOOGLE DOCS?
What is it? Google Docs & Spreadsheets is an easy-to-use, online word processor and spreadsheet editor that enables you to create, store, share, and collaborate on documents and spreadsheets. If you know how to use any word processor or spreadsheet program, you can easily use Google Docs & Spreadsheets. You can even import your existing documents and spreadsheets.
Google Calendar is an easy way for teachers, administrators and students to share time-related info like team schedules, assignment deadlines and school holidays. Anyone who needs to view a calendar can use it from any Internet-connected computer and access it on existing school web pages or within their own Google Calendar account. Changes made by a calendar organizer are automatically seen by anyone who checks, which makes outdated versions a thing of the past. You can set up separate calendars for each of your classes and share each one with a designated group of students, parents or the entire community. You can use Google Calendar to share info about class topics and descriptions for each session; assignment deadlines; test and quiz dates; and field trips and other activities. You can also use calendars to organize your schedules with other teachers and administrators. And administrators can use calendars to keep students and families updated about holidays, parent-teacher conference dates and other school-wide events. Between classes, assignments, team schedules, and personal appointments, it's tough for students to keep track of everything that's going on in their lives. Google Calendar can help, and it's easy, because teachers, coaches, and other group organizers are in charge of keeping almost everything up to date. Students just need to sign up for the calendars that they want to see, and the events on those calendars will automatically show up and get updated when plans change.
