It's Tuesday and I have been waiting a week to share what I tried. Be sure to check out all the great post at Fourth Grade Flipper with Holly, I promise you will not be disappointed.
Last week, Tina from Croft's Classroom shared about her new Chromebook.
I am in the market for a new computer and I just really don't want to spend a fortune. Mostly, I surf, blog and create documents. I love the idea of an ipad but I can't do documents on it and the cost is not something I want to spend.
I searched the Chromebook features after reading her posts. I liked, no loved the price. And after yesterday's Must Have it Mondays, I am buying a laminator, hands down!
There's no Microsoft though. How would I do documents?
Google Drive! I have very limited experience with it. I know it exists and somehow I actually have some documents on Google Drive. I couldn't tell you how they got there though. (This type of thing is when I really feel my age!)
So, I created a presentation on Google Drive to see how easy it could be. If I buy one, I will use it for almost everything. It wasn't very hard and I don't even know the ins and outs.
This was my first creation:
I can't say I am sold yet, but I am leaning this way.
I am going to keep playing around with Google Drive and see how it goes.
I also made a product for my store. It was fairly easy. I liked that I could save it in both PDF and PowerPoint for Microsoft.
What about you? Are you familiar with Google Drive? Has it worked for you? Pros? Cons?
