Google Docs & Sharing


As I was sitting quietly in the residence building this morning, I was browsing through numerous blogs and looking at what was happening on Twitter. At the top of my feed was the following Tweet from @shareski :

I did not know what the document would be about when I clicked on the link, but I soon found that the document was named “Thoughts on Innovation” and in the document was about 4 questions where people could post links and add their Twitter name at the end for contribution recognition. Within the first minutes, I watched anonymous animals type down links underneath the questions, and good ones too! I am once again *wowed* by Google Docs and the endless possibilities that can come from it. If you have many Twitter followers or Blog followers and are looking for ideas for a presentation or a lesson, Tweet a link to your Google Docs and everybody who follows you and feels like contributing will take the time to look at your document and help you out. Ideas from all around the world in the SAME document for you to use as a learning tool; amazing. This could very well be something I would do in the future if I needed more ideas or some inspiration to get the little hamster in my head to start turning the wheel. I have used Google Docs for the first time with a group last week and I loved how easy it was for all of us to work on the same document/project even though we were not necessarily together. So if you have tried Google Docs before and you are not a big fan, I suggest you try again and consider the many outcomes. If you have not tried it yet, what are you waiting for?

  1. I’m really happy with your activity on Twitter, and it’s great to see you connect and reflect in this way. Google Docs + Twitter has been one of my favorite combination of tools, and it’s wonderful to see the global collaboration that can be initiated through a (less than) 140 character message.

    • Thank you for taking the time to read my blog (I know you have lots to read), and yes I’m trying to be more active on Twitter so that I can extend my PLN as much as possible, it’s great to see everyone who is willing to help and giving you RT’s to have even more people share with you, I’m loving it!
