  • Writely and Google Spreadsheets for StudentsStudents can work on their assignments from any computer -- the school lab, the library, at home, at a friend\'s house, etc. Kids who use Writely and Google Spreadsheets don\'t have to remember to save a copy of their homework when they go from one location to the next – their work is always online, and thus accessible from any computer with an Internet connection. Students also find the sharing aspect of Writely and Google Spreadsheets valuable. Getting feedback on an assignment from a busy parent, a grandparent who lives in another town or a writing tutor is much easier when you can share the document or spreadsheet online and check back periodically to see the reviewer\'s comments.  Being able to share online is also helpful for group assignments where several students need to contribute. You can enter updates anytime, from different locations. And through the Revisions history, you can clearly see who contributed what to an assignment, and when. Writely and Google Spreadsheets for TeachersTeachers are using Writely both to publish announcements about upcoming assignments and to monitor student progress on assignments and give feedback along the way, rather than only when the final assignment has been handed in. Writely and Google Spreadsheets both enable an interactive process which gives teachers far more insight into how students are progressing on an assignment, enabling them to give guidance in the middle of the process, when it might be of maximum benefit.
