Google Docs for Middle school Teaming
  • team writing project assigned by our PD at our school
  • Four team 6-1 team members collaborated in writing to specific questions posed by the PD team during paid team collaboration
  • First step, I instructed each team member how to get a google docs account and we all did
  • Second, I put an outline of the questions required onto a google docs and then sent an invite to other team members
  • Third, we collaborated together in the same room as one team member typed into our google docs to start the rough draft of the Pd paper

Because google docs allowed us the flexibility to work from home we were able to edit and work on the paper even when our schedules would not allow us all to meet together at school.

  • I did wordle with my science class and the social studies teacher saw all of the science wordles displayed in the hallway and asked to learn how.
  • I made a 2 sided instructional how-to document to explain wordle to my own students, I gave this to her with about 15 minutes of instruction and she was off and running.
  • I Developed a science wikispace for myself and the other accelerated science teacher.

She is willing to give it try next semester after I work out all the bugs.


To get this video to play in school was the first bug. I had to get some help on that, because fortiguard won’t let youtube videos through even on a wiki, duh !

  • Used this a couple of times myself so I made a instructional handout using jing to pass out to anyone who wanted the information.
  • So far only 4 teachers have taken me up on it, ( I gave them brief verbal instructions along with the handout.) I think too many teachers don’t have time fight the fortiguard and the fortiguard has won too many times so they didn’t want to try anything else.
  • Zamzar holds the video for a short time and the videos take up a lot of space to download are also some other reasons this system is limited in its use
