    This was great for distance learning through google classroom. Although I did make my own video to along with the lessons. Really easy and straight forward and the kids loved it!

    When I found myself subbing in computers, I knew what I needed to teach but no lesson plans. With this I was able to use it with students with ease!!! Thanks !!!

    Since this our first year having formal technology classes, my students have never given any actual instruction for word processing software. This was an excellent way to introduce all my students to Google Docs. My younger students struggled a little bit, but that was expected. My older students were able to follow the videos and instructions easily.

    Sometimes we take for granted what students know and don’t know. These are great basic google doc lessons that every student should know how to do. A great resource.

    This is a great activity to introduce Google Docs to students. I like how the skills are broken down and presented. I added my own screencasts just as supplemental material, but the backbone of the lessons is here. Thank you for greating this great resource for tech and classroom teachers to use.
