Wonderful World of Google

Before you begin, you will first need to be familiar with Google Drive and Google Docs.

Step ONE: Creating a shared folder

Some lessons will include a worksheet that uses Google Docs or you may have to create a presentation. BYE BYE Libre Office! :) This means you will have to create a folder in your google drive to store all your assignments. It is very important that this folder be shared with your teacher.


Google does a good job of storing and securing your work. BUT, if you do not give your teacher the "rights" to your documents, they will not be able to view/grade and give you credit for your hard work.


Watch the video below on how to create your shared folder (make sure you share with your assigned teacher):
