10 Great Tools to Integrate with your Google Docs

10 Great Tools to Integrate with your Google Docs
Since Google officially changed Google Docs name to Google Drive and a number of updates have been introduced to improve its overall performance.

When you type something into a search engine, you assume that the search engine pours over the entire web to help you find what you're looking for. But Google only reaches about a sixth of the Surface Web—those sites on the internet that can be indexed and are available to the public. The other part of the internet is the hidden or Deep Web, which search engines can't reach, consisting of pages that are private, behind paywalls or just not readily accessed given today's search engines. Considering both the Surface and Deep Webs together, Google only accesses 0.03% of the entire internet. Within a portion of the Deep Web, criminal activity takes place.

Easily Accomplish Both with Google Docs! » Clint's Tech Integration Resources Permalink: UEN Faculty Lounge PPT or PDF versions Google facilitated the Education On Air Conference, a virtual conference for educators focused on and around Google Apps for Education, featuring their master teachers. I sat in on a few sessions – Managing Digital Portfolios w/ Google Tools from Kern Kelley, and The Paperless Classroom with Google Docs from Eric Curts.
