Plus, they will bring their own devices and follow along for a “hands-on” experience. There are features many people have not discovered, and there are hidden features, all of which make using DRIVE and DOCS more effective for the user. Educators, IT departments, administrators, librarians, support staff, etc – all will benefit from learning these features. Schools, non-profit organizations, and libraries across the country are using Google Tools. Educators have students collaborating, writing and editing online, and doing research. The tool they often use is Google Docs to harvest their information and do their online writing and collaborating. There are several “hidden” features of Google Docs that most users have not discovered. And, DRIVE has added new features and functionality that help improve the user’s experience. They allow teachers, librarians, administrators, and students to communicate and work more effectively and more efficiently. They will learn how customize the way they use both Drive and Docs. The can add custom fonts of their choice, set page attributes such as color, orientation, font, and size, and then make them default pages. They can make ePub documents for their students to read on devices such as smartphones, iPads, and more. They can edit images and photos without leaving the document. They will learn how to create masked images, with text. They will see how to quickly tell if collaborators have made changes to shared folders or documents. They will learn about the new drag and drop features. And, they will learn to use features such as the formatting tool, editing batches of text at one time, creating tables of content, adding bookmarks, using the Draw Tool, and more. I will review the Research Tool and Scholar for those who are interested. Attendees will also see how Add-ons enhance the functionality of Docs. For example, math and science teachers will love the ability to write complex math expressions and add graphs to documents, without having to use 3rd party software, and without having to leave the document itself. Other Add-ons are perfect for different disciplines, which will be shown in the presentation. I will give prizes out in this session.
