Making A Graph with Google Drive

This week I worked with two teachers at the middle school who were looking to graph some data that they had for their students' test scores. Instead of doing it within an application on your computer, you can do it right on Google Drive using the Spreadsheet tool. It's easy to do and then you can actually share the data and the graph easily since it's already online.

If you want to learn how to create spreadsheets and graphs, you can certainly make an appointment with me and I can help you learn how. Or, I just added a page to my Tutorials & Guides pages to walk you through it with a screencast I found on YouTube, a link to Google's "Get Started with Google Sheets" website, a link to Google's EDU Training documents on Google Sheets, and my Google Drive folder of resources.

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
