Level up your students’ Google Docs skills with a series of “ninja challenges”. Students will work their way through increasingly complex tasks to earn their black belts in Google Docs. Students will start with basic skills such as text formatting , bulleted lists, Commenting and more. They will then progress through more sophisticated tasks including table formatting, inserting MLA headers, formatting hanging indents. and creating and inserting graphs from spreadsheet data.
The Google Docs Ninja challenge comes complete with instructional videos to guide students through lesser-known tasks, making this a truly self-paced activity that will set your students up for success in their classes.
Use this as an excellent orientation or introductory activity to ensure all your students have the skills they need with Google Docs to succeed in their classes. Since it’s self-paced, students who have more experience may progress more quickly, making this a naturally differentiated activity.
If you or your school have recently acquired Chromebooks, gone 1 to 1, or if you’re just tired of your students not formatting things properly in Google Docs, this activity will empower your students to properly understand and use the tools available in the Google Apps suite.
