Control Alt Achieve: Using Google Keep for Grading Comments in Docs One of the great features of Google Docs is the ability to leave comments in the margin.

10 Word Cloud Generators You Have Probably Never Tried A few days back, we looked at five great ways to incorporate word cloud generators into your classroom.
