Google Documents and Spreadsheets

One of Google's newest features is an online word processor and spreadsheet program. I can't say that I've really investigated it fully, BUT it would be great for kids to use here at the library. Why? It never fails that they are working on a project for school and the computer dies and takes the user's documents/work with it!

Since the kiddos are using an online document editor they can save to their own space on the web and NOT lose their work. The service is also fantastic if you are working on a collaborative project between three or four people. Instead of having to e-mail a particular document to each person, simply use Google Documents and you won't have to worry about who uses which word processing program etc. Click here to go to Google Documents.
