5 Fab Features of Google Docs

posted Aug 24, 2016, 9:43 AM by Anthony Luscre   [ updated Aug 24, 2016, 9:43 AM ]


5 Fab Features of Google Docs

  1. Voice Typing- Docs now includes the ability to speak to your computer and your words will appear in your Doc. It works well, uses context-sensitive clues to choose the correct form of words that sound the same, it allows multiple languages and more!

  2. Insert Special Characters- Forget the Alt + ASCII code for your needed special characters. Docs now allow you to find and insert hundreds of special characters by simply drawing an example with your mouse or using the text searching tools.

  3. Turn your static PDFs into Docs that you can edit and type in via Google Drive's OCR which is ran on the file and it is converted to a Google Doc.

  4. Revision History- View and/or restore your document to any point in its “life”. No more accidental deletions. You can also see who made the changes and when. With an Add-on you can even see what percentage each student participated in a writing project.

  5. Research Tool- Imagine using Google Search right in your document. Find information, definitions, images and more. Has built-in citation and linking capability!

I use Edmodo as a part of my PLN*, so I was very excited to see new features announced today--

New Website Features

posted Aug 17, 2016, 2:43 PM by Anthony Luscre   [ updated Aug 29, 2016, 8:57 AM ]

I have added 3 new features- a "Focus Areas" chart to help you find relevant pages by your content area(s). The second addition is a Site Guide, a Listing of all of the pages with highlights of each page. Thirdly- Google Doc for you to take notes on the Web Resource Hoarder site-- list your favorite links, make notes about specific pages, etc. To use this Doc you will need a Google Apps/Gmail account. You first need to make your own editable copy, go to top menu, choose "File"... then "Make a copy"
