Working with Google documents offline

All of us who work mainly in the cloud (in my case, almost exclusively) have heard comments like: “It’s great to have all the information in the cloud, but the day you don’t have the internet you won’t be able to do anything”. This statement has not been true for a long time now, but it’s okay to remember it and see how to set it all up so that we can really work when we don’t have access to the network. In this article we will see how to access documents, presentations and spreadsheets in Google format that we have on Drive and how we can work. It is necessary to specify that, for the moment, we can only work with these 3 types of files. Therefore, without connection we will not be able to work with sites, forms, drawings, mymaps, etc.

How do I use Google Classroom?

I’ve been using Google Classroom in the classroom with students for 3 years. At first, there were few of us who dared to jump in. I’ve seen a lot more people using it lately. I have already explained in one article that Moodle and Classroom are different things to me. Neither better nor worse. In any case, Classroom is better suited to my way of managing the classroom. Following several conversations I’ve had lately, this article explains how I use it. It’s not the best way, nor the only way. But I share it in case it can be an inspiration or just to find out how NOT to use it 😉
