Still Printing Worksheets? Use Google Drawing…

Teachers if you are still creating printalbe worksheets Google Drawing is perhaps the easiest Google APP for Education (GAfE) component to use. My preference is to go paperless and GAfE offers a variety of ways to do this depending upon the results one is looking for. However today’s focus is upon how to create “Printable Worksheets.”

When it comes to creating worksheets most teachers are drawn to starting with a Google Doc. However it isn’t an efficient way to create what I refer to as “Down and Dirty” quick worksheets for printing.  Try a Google Drawing you may find this will eliminate struggles with aligning and layering of  images, tables and etc… It is easy to place contend just where you want with a Google Drawing.
