Google Docs is a web-based document creation and editing application that students and teachers can view, edit and collaborate on live. 
 
Google Docs is available to all our schools as part of our Google Apps for Education suite via classm8.  

Google Docs can be used on any device, anywhere and because it is cloud based, at anytime.

  3. Teachers and students can feedback via a comments field
  4. Inbuilt research and citation tool
  5. Tracks changes and who changed the document via a revision history
