google_docs_e2_compliance After reading the update on blackboard about Google Docs, I decided to look into this a little bit farther.  I must say that this is actually yet another brilliant form of media out together by the makers of Google.  This truly is going to be such a great tool to use with in our classrooms for a number of reasons.  For starters, it is 100 percent free.  You don’t have to pay 100 dollars for the Office Suite.   It includes so many programs like office, which, are useful in our everyday lives.

One of the biggest things that I found to be of interest using Google Docs was the way that you have the ability to send your email/attachment to others, and allow them to modify your work.  I really feel that this would become overall useful to teachers with collaboration, but as well as students.  Students would be able to peer-review their works on the computer.  This would help to bring new media into the classroom. This short video clip helps to put Google Docs in plain English for users of just how it works.
