One great way to use Sheets with teachers or others who may not have or use Google Drive is to share with them using the “Anyone with the link can edit–no sign-in required”. This way, the individual will not even need a Google account in order to access and edit alongside everyone else. It’s a great way for someone to “get their feet wet” and learn a little more about Google Drive/G Suite.
Another simple way to use Google Sheets is as a class resource sheet. If you have several websites you refer to often when working with students, or resources that you would like them to have easy access to, adding them all to a single spreadsheet in Google Sheets is a great way to share with students. Once a student has the link, they can easily bookmark it, or pin it to their Chrome browser.
I love, love, love using Google Drive in my day-to-day, and with students. Interested in learning more about these great tools? I’m now offering this mini-course on G Suite. Check it out!
