Collaborate with colleagues
Set up a peer review system
Multiple sharing settings allow you to publish student work by sharing it within your class, within your school or district, or by making it public on the web. You can even share a student’s work with their parents to showcase their accomplishments.
Translate letters home to parents
I have heard that it may be best to have a proof-reader before sending. I would include a message saying this document was auto-translated with Google Translate.
Gift your students easy reference tools
Teach your students how to easily utilize reference tools with Google Docs’ built-in access to a dictionary, thesaurus and encyclopedia.
Liven up your assignments with visuals and graphics
You can search Google Images, Time Magazine, and stock photos directly from within Docs to add images and gifs to your assignments.
As an added bonus, you can make the text in images and PDFs editable by simply opening them within Google Docs. (YouTube example)
Work with any file type
We know that sometimes your students and colleagues use Office files, but don’t worry because Google Docs is compatible with other document software, making it easy to work with any file type regardless of which is used.
Work on the go or offline
Work on the go: Download and use the Google Docs mobile app to make last minute tweaks when away from your desktop or laptop.
Work offline: Google Docs offers offline creation and editing, too. Enable offline syncing in order to download files to your device and edit them offline. When an internet connection is reestablished, Docs will automatically sync and update your files to the cloud.
