DECEMBER TOPIC: Using Google Drive/Docs for research

Students were shown how to use Google Drive/Docs to simplify the research process. Included was how to cite their sources. Students moved from the demonstration in the library/media-center to the computer lab, created a google doc, adding research, an image and a citation for their chosen topic, They then shared their document with their teacher.
