Incorporating Google Documents and Forms into your Practice

Google Docs is a flexible technological tool that can be used to facilitate language learning in all levels. Google Docs provides language teachers with ways to: 1) support language learners in writing collaboratively with others by sharing documents online, 2) design self-assessments, polls and quizzes by using online forms, and 3) collect and store student data and assignments. This hands-on workshop will take teachers through planning, creating, and applying two tools offered by Google Docs: "documents" and "forms." Workshop activities will be designed to aid teachers in incorporating their own materials and ideas into the planning and creation of languages learning tasks.
