Have you ever wanted to share your written thoughts with another person and have them add theirs to your document?

Google Docs is the answer!

Google Docs is the answer to so many questions!

  • What if I get somewhere and forgot to print my paper?

Log into Google and print from Google Docs!

  • What if I need to work with someone else on a project but we don't live near each other?

Create a shared Google Doc where both of you can edit it and make changes!

  • What if I want to have someone proofread my paper?

Share it on Google Docs with him or her and he or she can edit and make changes.
