Chromebooks

Chromebook User Group

Hello from the Google Chromebooks team!

My name is Emma and I work on the Education Team here at Google. I wanted to let you know that teachers using Chromebooks recently started a user group and I would love if you would pass along the link to join(below) to all of the teachers at Polk County Public Schools who will have Chromebooks in their classroom next year.  We hope you find this community a helpful place to collaborate and share resources on the open web and connect with other Chrome OS users. Please forward the message below to all teachers who will be using Chromebooks and feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.

“Join the Chromebook conversation! Please click the link here (https://groups.google.com/form/#!forum/chromebook-teachers) to join the Chromebook Teachers user group and share favorite Apps and lesson plans with fellow Chromebook teachers from across the United States. Ask for advice or share your own favorite Apps and extensions from the webstore.”


Forms
These are special spreadsheets designed to collect information.

Drive/Docs
Which should I be using??   The short answer is "It doesn't matter".  Drive is the new name for the old service called Docs.  Both allow you to create documents online, share, collaborate......    The only real difference is in how you can organize your documents.  If you "upgrade" your account to Drive, you have more flexibility.


Sharing/Collaborating
How you want to do this is completely up to you.

Templates
These are documents created to be used as a guide for students.  Students may not edit the original Template, but can edit their copy of the original  template.
