30 Days with Google #6: Create a classroom newspaper using Google Docs (a SchoolNet webinar presentation)


Google Docs is an amazing way to create a classroom newspaper. Last night we scheduled a SchoolNet webinar featuring Brenda Hallowes from Port Elizabeth, where she outlined how she uses Google Docs to create classroom newspapers with Foundation Phase students.

First she starts off with a template like this one shown below. This template can be accessed here.

Here is another template sample that can be accessed here.

The class is then assigned different parts of the template to write on at the same time. This is the beauty of working in a collaborative programme such as Google Docs.

Here is the screencast that Brenda created for the webinar. Take a look and listen.



I am hoping that Brenda will send me a link to the finished product. This is a fantastic lesson to do with a class that has computer access. Thank you for sharing this Brenda.
