Google Docs for Teachers - SHS Presentation


Published on

In the summer of 2012, I was invited to present to a group of teachers at Sacred Heart Schools in Atherton, to talk about how Google Docs can be used as a collaboration and workflow tool. It was a very hands-on workshop, with clear deliverables at the end.
This presentation is intended for users who are already familiar with the basic features of Google Docs and would like to see examples of how it can be used to increase collaboration and productivity.
