Using Voice Comments with Google Docs for End of the Year Projects I had a “just in time” professional development moment thanks to Jennifer Roberts and her video titled “Docs Voice Comments.” I wanted to share it with other educators as I know many of us are planning end of the year projects, assignments, and written pieces. These culminating assignments are incredibly time consuming to grade. I also wonder how many of my students carefully read the comments I make on these pieces since they get them back just as the school year ends and summer break begins. Lastly, these end of the year projects are finished products, so covering them with comments or editing directly on them may not be the most effective way to provide feedback.
How to share - Google Drive Help If you want to send a file or folder to someone so that they can view, edit, or comment on it, you can share it with them directly in Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, or Slides, or through a link or email attachment. Anyone you share the file or folder with will see changes made as they happen so that everyone can be on the same page and you can get feedback quickly. In this video, you’ll learn how to share your files with individual people and with groups, and how to choose what others can do with a file. Share a file or folder
Twitter is a Teacher Superpower! “We all know that education budgets are getting cut more and more, and that meaningful professional development opportunities have unfortunately become a bit of an oxymoron in education. Not only can being a “connected educator” help change that, but it can also provide you with ongoing inspiration and support. I’d even go as far to argue that being connected will be the most impactful thing you can do in your career.” Rubrics for Teachers - Assessment A collection of rubrics for assessing portfolios, group work/cooperative learning, concept map, research process/ report, PowerPoint, oral presentation, web page, blog, wiki, and other social media projects.

A Tutorial For Google Drive In The Classroom A Tutorial For Google Drive In The Classroom Tutorial by TeachThought Staff The use of cloud-based word processing and storage is among the most underrated examples of education technology. If literacy is the foundation of learning, tools that promote its integration can be considered equally foundational. Limits on sharing - Google Drive Help There are limits to the number of people with whom you can share Google documents, files, and folders and how many people can simultaneously collaborate: Only 50 people can edit a document, spreadsheet, presentation, or drawing at the same time. Additional users will still be able to view the item, but they won't be able to edit it, and they won't be visible to others working on the item. Scripts - New Visions CloudLab New Visions' Script Gallery Prior to March 2014 Apps Scripts for Google Sheets were installed and via a "locally-attached copy" made available to users through the "Script Gallery." Since then, Google has made big changes to scripts, most visibly by creating a new way of distributing them as Add-ons for Docs -- in which all users run from a single, developer-maintained copy of the codebase. Add-ons are now available for Google Docs, Sheets, and Forms through three respective galleries in the Chrome Web Store. A number of our tools from the heyday of scripts have not been ported over to Add-ons framework, but they are still quite useful and fun perfectly fine in the NEW Google Sheets when run as local scripts. Since you can no longer access the old scripts gallery via a Sheets, you must access these scripts by making yourself a copy of an existing Google Sheet (File -> Make Copy) that holds the code in the Script Editor.
