GoogleDoc Use

I have previously shared some of the inspirational ways I find to use GoogleDocs in the classroom, especially for management purposes. Yesterday, I read a great blog post on the Free Technology for Teachers blog; the title  is ‘Put the Directions to the Side, Make the Learning Central.’  This is a great use for comments in the margin of a GoogleDocs.

When creating an assignment template for students, comments that highlight directions and tech skills can be inserted right next to specific parts of the assignment.

I find that students tend to struggle at the same spot. Instead of repeating the directions twenty times a day, I can anticipate the issue and add a comment in the margin to reiterate for the students what they need to do. I love this idea for its potential and simplicity.
