Interesting ways to use Docs in the Classroom

Tom Barrett is back again for a third guest post on Official Google Docs Blog. This time, he offers practical tips for using Google Docs in class and asks for help adding more tips. The collaborative presentation he and other teachers are creating will be a great complement to all of the ideas and projects we collected from K-12 teachers in September. We’re in the process of sorting through the many great submissions and will share them with everyone in the near future. And so, without further ado, here’s Tom’s presentation:

    Adding footnotes to your documents

    Google had added support for footnotes. You can find footnotes in the Insert menu. When you create a footnote, it’ll appear to the right of the document margin and a footnote marker (#) will appear within the actual document. You can drag and drop footnotes anywhere you’d like by clicking on the pound sign and dragging it.

    When you print or save as your document as a PDF, your footnotes will appear at the bottom of the page. You can see how your footnotes will appear when printed by selecting Print (Ctrl+P) or Download file as… PDF from the File menu. However, if you download your document as a Word, OpenOffice, RTF or HTML file, your footnotes will appear as endnotes, at the end of your document.

    Here’s a video that shows you how to insert footnotes.
