Final project for EDT 505 submitted by Jessica Bates

Google Docs creates differentiation as students can use the various add ons for assistance, watch as peers and teachers edit in real time, and even chat with others to get better understanding. For example, as a whole class we shared one Google Doc to begin our introduction and watched as various students added or deleted sentences to make the introduction stronger. This helped with students who had trouble being able to write on their own and increased participation.
