  • Do you recommend Read&Write Gold for Google for students?

  • Can I add a graph to a Google Sheet? Can I copy and paste it into a Google Doc?

    Posted by:

    Google Sheets has features built in to create graphs from data sets. These graphs can be copied and then pasted into the STEM file in Google Docs. Catherine recommends students also include a hyperlink to the data set file as a reference.

  • What Google basics should be covered in school training?

    Posted by:

    Design the training to start with the content (what CCSS-related topics will be covered by that grade level soon, what current pedagogy is used to teach it and how can technology substitute / augment / modify / redefine the learning experience for the students).


    Design the training in the same manner but about an executive function for the educator as a professional (i.e. keeping a parent log in Google forms, collecting parent contact information at p/t conferences, brainstorming evidence to put into STAGES before uploading it, etc...)
