I am experimenting with using Google Docs in my ELD classes. I am a novice at this, but want to learn enough to start the year off with it in August. I see it as a way to be kind to the environment as well as prepare my students for college. What I like the most about it is that kids won't lose their papers! If anyone has some suggestions to make this a more efficient learning process, I would be forever indebted to you.

I don't know if you know about this feature, but Google Docs has a built in translation tool that you may find useful. Here's a link to Google's how-to: http://goo.gl/07JU

Also, if there's any way you can set up Google Apps for you and your students, I would suggest it. It gives you a measure of control over what and with whom documents can be shared. Just food for thought.

I've been using Docs and Apps for some time with my computer applications classes, and I love it. Best of luck! If there's anything I can do to help, DM me on Twitter: @TeachWithGoogle.
