Using Google Docs to Correct Student Responses

Instead of having your students write their answers on the board for the class to review and critique (grammar, spelling, punctuation, syntax, etc.), why not use Google Docs?  Using a spreadsheet format, students can write their answers simultaneously.  No waiting for markers, no waiting for a space at the board, no problem with poor handwriting, etc.  The students’ answers can still be reviewed by the class as a whole by projecting the document on a screen. Or, another option for correcting the work would be to have the class edit each other’s responses on the computer using a different colored font.  What a fun way for students to collaborate, learn to use new technologies, and accomplish content goals!
