Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can assign students to compose short responses to a text or lesson using the Word-document component of this app, and teachers can require students to email them their responses using this app.
  2. Teachers can have students create PowerPoint presentations using this app, which they can present to the class, email to the teacher, or post a link to the class website.
  3. Math and Science teachers can use this app by having students track data using an Excel spreadsheet. Next, teachers can have students email them their work or post a link to the class website.
  4. By linking to an online document storage area (e.g., Dropbox), teachers can use this app to instruct students how to organize their digital files. To do so, students would first need to create folders in their online storage area. Next, students would then create a document using this app and upload it to their online storage area. Finally, teachers would show students how to “drag & drop” files into folders. Examples of organized and unorganized online storage areas will help emphasize the need for students to be organized digitally.
