Official Google Blog: With a little help from your friends
Google has come up with a cool tool to help teachers improve their students writing skills.
You can divide the class into groups and give each group a writing assignment. All the members of the group can share a Google Doc. Whatever corrections they make and changes they arrive at will be saved. They can see their draft taking shape write from the first draft to the last.
This is a very good chance for helping our students revise and polish their draft. Writing experts have always advocated peer editing as a way of improving writing skills.
Students pay little attention to teachers' corrections after the essay is completed. And writing can improve if students get feedback during the process rather than after the final draft is ready.
Google also offers a PDF report that suggests how to revise your writing and improve your papers.
If any of you want to use it, but need help in opening a Google doc or implementing this in class, file a ticket at www.askrangoo.com and I will help you.
