Google Sheets

Self-Paced Professional Development Course

What is Google Sheets?

Google Sheets is an online spreadsheet program incorporating the basic features of Microsoft Excel or Apple Numbers, but adding real-time collaboration and sharing options that make it a great classroom and professional tool.

How can I use it to enhance & transform my classroom?

  • Take collaboration to a whole new level!

    • Create spreadsheets and share them with your students or colleagues, choosing whether they can edit, just comment on it, or only view it.

    • Students can create spreadsheets individually, collaborate with classmates in real-time, and/or share them with you for review.

    • Eliminate compatibility frustrations caused by differences in software programs and devices. Everyone can use Google Sheets.

    • Access from any internet-capable device any time.

    • Ensure all collaborators are doing their part by referencing the revision history of the spreadsheet.
