Tech Leader Aliza has a tip that will absolutely, without a doubt, make you a stronger student this year. It may sound simple, but one of the smartest things you can do is to teach yourself how to use the Google Apps before you start having a lot of homework. Check it out.
Your netbook can do a lot of things; inside Libre Office, there’s a professional word processor, spreadsheet, presentation program, and a lot more. We love Libre Office, but we love Google Docs even more! With Google Docs, your work is stored in the cloud--- there’s no risk of losing it. Plus you can collaborate with teammates on every project. And sharing files with your teachers is a snap.
Learn the Google Apps (Gmail, Google Docs, and Google Calendar). When you walk into a class, open your netbook, and log into your Google account. You have all of your documents, your email, your calendar and tasks all in one place. You’ll be glad you did.
