Welcome to the Docside: How to use Google Docs in your classroom Grades 6-12
Would you like the ability to check up on students as they are producing their work? Or would you like to avoid students losing their work? If so, then Google Docs is for you. With Google Docs, students can share documents and other work with teachers and other students to allow for easy collaboration. This allows for teachers to comment on students’ work as well as keep track of progress and editing history. Teachers can meet students in their documents and easily guide them through the work process and correct any issues before students hand in final copies.
