Classroom Considerations

  • Even though the slideshow is designed for a library resource center, it would be a great addition to any class where learners needed Google Docs
  • There is a lot of text on each slide, making it a better resource for individual study than for showing a large group of learners

  • Takes learners through different processes in Google Docs, allowing them to become proficient in very little time
  • This first slide is the table of contents
Cons
