Google CheatSheet


Check out this Google Cheatsheet (via Mark). It is a pretty cool outline of everything Google. I think that there is real opportunity to use these free services in public schools. I just offered to work with my kids' elementary school to integrate some of these technologies. I hope they are interested.

  1. That's pretty cool. I actually collect cheatsheets, and this one will be a good one for the collection.

  2. Careful Lee. Introducing "cheatsheets" to elementary school children! How about "Helpful E-Hints" or "GoogleSheet" instead of "CheatSheet"

    Hello Lee!

    I thought I'd put in my two cents to try to steer you away from Google Docs and show you "Coventi Pages," which we think has serious potential as an online education tool.

    It's a full-featured online word processor with discussion features that go way beyond current "comment" offerings and have the potential to change the way people work together on documents.

    At Stanford University, we're finding that instructors really like it for giving feedback to students, and that students find it useful for peer reviews and group projects.

    Coventi was founded by Stanford Computer Science students and is advised by Stanford Profs. Terry Winograd (Advisor to Larry Page on the "Page Rank" paper) and Fred Gibbons (Founder, Software Publishing Corp.).

    Here's a link to a quick demo video:

    Accounts are free right now so it's a great time to give it a try. If you do, please let me know what you think!

    Thanks so much,

    Dan
