Reason #7 why we love Google Docs in the classroom: It’s easy to use.
Google Docs is a very cool tool to use in the classroom. It’s Google’s version of a word processor and it comes free as part of Google Apps for Education.
Your administrator will set up Google Apps for your school and create student and teacher accounts. Just take your class to the lab and log in.
- Click on “Create New”.
- Choose Document and start typing away.
- It’s easy to change the title of your document.

And that’s Reason #7 why we love Google Apps for Education: it’s easy to use.
