Google Docs + Collaboration/Discussion
Using Google Docs as a collaboration tool for discussion is a great way to integrate technology in the classroom. Do you have a current news article, a primary source, or a reading excerpt you would like students to read and discuss? Copy and paste the reading into a Google Doc, highlight and comment on a section with a discussion question. Share the document by giving students the link or posting it on your Google Classroom. Have students answer and discuss the question as they read.
The link below take you to more detailed instructions on this type of activity.
This following idea was found in a Twitter chat by Richard Byrnes from FreeTech4Teachers.com.
