  • • Three ways to leave a comment on a doc
  • • Resolving the comment hides it from view
  • • Open the drop down menu to delete, re-open link to - click small arrow beside green tick
  • • Using the voice comments app for commenting. How to install & use.
  • • Voice comments app is a free app available through the Chrome Store
  • NOTE: If it has “sign in to add” instead of “connect” you will need to contact your google apps administrator and get them to change the privileges allowing you to download apps from the Chrome Store
  • • NOTE: At this stage it doesn’t appear that you can use this feature to comment on student work via teacher dashboard
  • • RTC criterion and school wide goal templates for our school were made using the table function • Easy to share with other staff, via the share button • Make a copy, and use on eportfolio
  • • If you have concerns about students altering their assessments, change to visibility setting to “can view” This way they are unable to edit the document
  • • I tend to use the symbols from palettes 2 & 4
  • • The key to using the editor successfully is in using the “return” key on the keyboard • Example - inputing a fraction into a doc number 1. Select “new equation” choose palette 4 then 7 “enter” 8 “enter”
  • • Within docs there are 2 ways to do this ...
  • • You can search for any type, face, photo, clip art or line drawing • Click on the image you want to insert in your doc. Select “insert” Resize it within the doc • Disadvantages - less of selection to choose from • Advantages - less chance of violating copyright (digital citizenship)
  • • The second way to locate CC images is via the research tool
  • • The research tool is a useful tool to keep students getting distracted if they need to search. It keeps their search activity within the document itself. No opening multiple tabs etc • Other features allows you to search for “quotes” access google scholar and the dictionary
  • • Enter your search term. Click on the image you want and drag and drop it into your doc. • You can even choose how you want to cite (reference) the image. Three options: MLA, APA, Chicago • The citation for the image will appear as a footnote in the doc
  • • Free app for IOS and android devices • Useful app for BYOD schools using google apps for ed
  • • The next 2 tips relate to google spreadsheets and forms
  • • This is really useful for embedding into student eportfolios so they can track their progress throughout the year
  • • Click top left cell, hold down the shift key and then click on bottom right cell
  • • Student inputs data into spreadsheet and it automatically updates on eportfolio
  • • Students earn their “ninja” belts as they progress through the various levels • If they score over 80% they earn a digital ninja belt (certificate) which they embed into their eportfolio
  • • First few questions identify the student - email address to send results to • The tests themselves are all multi-choice
