You may be aware that Google rolled out a revamped version of its Google Docs system this week. I haven’t had time to explore all of it, but I was interested in the launch of a drawing option that would allow you to collaborate with others. So, I set up a simple picture, published it to the world and asked folks in various networks to try it out. At one time, I noticed there were about 30 people with access to the file. Not everyone added to the drawing, but it was pretty interesting.
I could see some possibilities in the classroom around shared drawing, or maybe a shared art project with someone else in the world. The tools in the drawing program are pretty limited but I think kids could still be very creative.
Peace (with the pen),
PS — Here is the video announcing the revampled Google Docs.
