How I Use It
I have learned what I know about the apps by watching Youtube videos and from students. Our district is planning on purchasing Chromebooks in the very near future so I need to teach myself as much as I can so that I can support student learning. Great collaborative tool. Easy and simple to learn and use.
My Take
Love this product-I believe it is going to replace Microsoft products in the future! I learned the basics of this app so that I can support its use in the library and computer labs on a daily basis. We better learn this up and coming Google app because the students already know how to use it, and know more than we do. Includes documents, spreadsheets, forms, drawing, and presentation tools
