Teacher Voice

We have been using Google Docs in our class this year and have found it beneficial to student learning. The collaboration and sharing that goes on between teacher and students and students and students while they are working is at a level I have never experienced in a class before. All children are discussing what they are doing and helping others with all parts of their writing. Also to be able to send information as a comment to them while they are working makes feedback instantaneous.

Inquiry - children working in groups. Goolge Docs helps how they can share their ideas and work together. it is a tool to achieve the learning and activities that were required to work collaboratively for the task.
