50 Ways Google Docs Helps Educators and Schools

The Google Docs collaboration features are a boon to 21st Century students and educators, and to anyone who needs to work with others to complete a task.

The process of brainstorming, sharing, and eventually developing stronger and more examined ideas is a primary focus of teaching and learning. Google Docs makes these collaboration tasks easy to do.

Just about everything we do these days is about connecting and developing personal learning networks.

In a recent speech given at the BigTent conference in The Hague, Hillary Clinton noted:

The Internet is not exhaustible. The more people who are on the Internet contributing ideas, the more valuable the Internet becomes to all the other users.

The Edudemic blog recently posted tips and ideas about using Google Docs in a school community. Some of these are common sense thoughts, but others are powerful suggestions that can help teachers use materials more effectively (and save lots of time).
