After reviewing the activity ideas and Google Docs tutorials, you may develop your own lesson plans and ideas. Google For Educator want to hear from you! They invite you to share your curriculum ideas with the Google Educators community through their Google for Educators Discussion Group.

Come check out the lesson, grab a few hints on using Google Docs and introduce your kids to buddy writing. We suspect their collaborations will get your creative juices flowing, too.
