#GoogleTips--Google Docs Tips and Tricks

We've used Google Apps for Education for a couple of years now at Keystone. Although we did some "crash course" trainings early on, I thought it might be beneficial to revisit Google Docs and explore some of the more advanced features.

Did  you know that in Google Docs, you can

  • Select from a variety of templates for MLA reports, resumes, letters, essays, brochures, and more?
  • Install more than 450 additional fonts?
  • Search Google, Google Scholar, and Google Images without leaving your document?
  • Find and insert copyright friendly images from Google, Life Magazine, or stock photos from your doc?
  • Add programs such as a bibliography maker, rubric builder, thesaurus, or mind mapping tool?
  • Dictate what's on your mind instead of typing?

To learn how to use these great features and more, take a look at the Google Slides presentation embedded below that I created for recent teacher training sessions.
