E3T Google Guided Tour
Start by launching the Chrome browser on your computer.

What is Google Drive:
Google Drive is a file storage and synchronization service created by Google. It allows users to store files in the cloud, share files, and edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations with collaborators.
Getting Started with Google Drive:
You can store and access your files anywhere with Google Drive — on the web, on your hard drive, or on the go.
Make your Google Drive Account:
Next, you’ll learn how to make a new folder:
Folders are the storage system for Drive. Just like you use folders on your computer or in your filing cabinet. Google Drive uses folders to organize documents and share items with others.
Create a new Google Doc:
Google Docs are the mainstay of Google Drive. Think of this as similar to a word processor, like Word, but so much more! Because they are in the “cloud” and you can invite others to work with you on a document, Google Docs is so much more!
Using Google Templates
Learn How to Find a template
You can find and use templates in each of the Docs, Sheets, and Slides home screens.
Opening the template automatically makes a copy of it for you in your Drive.
Rename the document
Now rename the document with your name: E3T Lesson [Name]; e.g. E3T Lesson Hardin
Sharing Google Docs
One of the best parts of Google Docs is the ability to share the docs with others and to invite colleagues, students, parents etc to contribute and collaborate all in one document.

About Google Forms -
Google Forms is a simple way to collect data on the web and gather it in a spreadsheet. You’ve used Google Forms throughout the E3T project to share what you know (our pre and post tests). You can use it in the classroom to make exit tickets; collect science data; gather information about your student’s data about their lesson.
