I’m so excited to go back to Union University today. Dr. Anna Clifford and her students invite me from time to time to come and spend some time with them talking about Google and Web 2.0. We always have so much fun. (Anna always remembers that M&Ms are my favorite treats, too.) Today, I have the pleasure of Joanne G. coming with me to share her expertise as well. She’s a former middle school teacher with Memphis City Schools and has a wealth of real-world knowledge that can be sure with Anna’s preservice teachers. I don’t know if we’ll get everything that we want to talk about in or not, though.
Today, we’re going to tooling around with Google Docs/Apps. In particular, we’re going to take a look at Google Reader, Google Docs word processor, Google Docs presentations, Google Docs spreadsheets and Google Docs forms.
Here’s the links to the wiki pages I’ve created to go along with the workshop. Anything we don’t get to will be accessible through these links, and please use them liberally.
- Using Google Reader
- Using Google Docs word processor
- Using Google Docs presentations
- Using Google Docs spreadsheet
- Creating forms and quizzes with Google Docs forms
And a Google Form for us to try if we have time.
