4 Great New Google Docs Templates for Teachers

Very helpful. Templates include creating lesson plans, brochures, newsletters and resumes.

Get started by going to the Docs Gallery and click on 'More' on top right hand 
November 21, 2015. A few months ago, we shared with you six popular Google Docs templates to use in your instruction but those were in the old template gallery. Now that the new Docs template gallery is released, there are way more practical templates to use for different educational purposes.

The NEW Google+. Collections and Communities are the focus.
Dive into the new Google+
As +Eddie Kessler shared this afternoon (, we’ve spent lots of time talking to people who are passionate about Google+. We visited them in their homes, we invited them into early testing communities and we learned more about how and why they use Google+. The predominant answer? Having a great place to keep up with and talk about their interests. From Astrophotography ( to Wild Hummingbirds (, people are not only discovering amazing things, but meeting others who share their passions as well.

Today we’re taking a big step toward making Google+ an even better place for your interests. To do so, we’ve drastically simplified nearly every aspect of the product. You’ll see this clearly in our new navigation centered around Collections and Communities. Collections let you immerse yourself in content about topics like surfing ( or tiny tilt-shift photography scenes ( . Communities enable groups of people with the same interests to join up and geek out on anything from Game of Thrones ( to Painting ( With Collections and Communities, discovering amazing things is simple: just follow or join whatever happens to pique your interests.

But we didn’t stop with Collections and Communities; the new Google+ also makes it easier to post, search, connect, and keep up with great content in a fully redesigned home stream. And we’ve worked hard to make our new web experience load fast and work beautifully on devices of all sizes.

You can preview the new Google+ on the web today by signing in and clicking “Let’s go” when you see the prompt. (And since not every feature of Google+ has made its way into this new design, for now, you can toggle back to the classic Google+ with one click in the bottom left-hand corner.) In the coming days, we’ll roll out updated apps for Android and iOS.

While this is an exciting new beginning for us, we’re definitely not done yet. We got here by listening and learning, and will continue doing so. Please visit our Help Center ( or drop us a line in our support community ( to share your thoughts, questions, and more.

We help business grow with social media and office technologies.
Speaker, Consultant, Teacher and Writer

My passion has always been teaching and speaking about business and marketing technologies. In 2004, I opened MOSTraining, Inc., providing corporate productivity training in Microsoft Office. As technology grew so did MOSTraining, which now provides training in Mobile, Office and Social technologies. 

When social media appeared on the horizon, I began to learn all that I could and implement it within my own company. I started first with LinkedIn and then quickly moved into the use of other social platforms for marketing. As I learned, I applied it within my own company. It was a natural fit to add social media marketing to the companies offerings.

I come from a family of entrepreneurs, which started with my Dad who owned his own building company and a retail store. One brother started a local magazine, a sister who opened her own business and another brother is a master at building furniture and has his own business. 

Bragging rights
I won a blogging contest that ran in 2011, that landed me the opportunity to write a book review for their online magazine.
