What's Up With Google Docs?
The internet is an endless - and endlessly changing - source of connection, inspiration and, of course...
I always seem to find vastly more on the internet than I can use. Like everyone else I know, I count on other people, or other websites to filter out the best, or most relevant sources for me to use.
Google Docs is yet another ever-expanding resource. If you do anything with documents, you could start at no better place.
Here are just a few things you can do with Google Docs.

I love the internet, you never know what little piece of information, story or insight you might stumble into. I incorporate my little discoveries in my classes all the time.
Let us know what links or other resources you find useful or encouraging. We are all learning and making new connections all the time. And sharing makes our journey much richer.
