Google Docs has long been an amazing tool for collecting student writing, fostering collaboration, and teaching authentic efficiency through cloud computing. During the COVID-19 “Soft School Closures” here in Utah this tool has taken on a new role. Google Docs is the new paper for teachers and students separated by a fear of Coronavirus germs.
