Google Docs

Several folks found the idea of using collaborative documents very promising at the recent KABT fall meeting. Bill Welch and Noah Bush have already been trying to get all their students up and running. They apparently ran into a limit on the number of gmail accounts they could create. I did some looking and you can actually create a google account (for documents and such) separately from gmail…. didn’t know that. At any rate here’s a resource that I found that outlines some possible techniques for using collaborative documents in the classroom including establishing new google accounts for a batch of students at once.
