Have you ever wondered if you can turn an image or a PDF or into an editable document? What was once a costly and buggy turnaround, is now free and quick with Google Drive. This can be an invaluable trick that can save students time, resources, and most of all, energy! Let me show you the steps.
What are the Steps?
What are the Ways Students Can Use This Helpful Feature?
- Take a clear picture of a teacher's notes or another student's notes, pull then into a Google document, and make them your own. You can now add additional information or comments.
- Make a PDF worksheet editable so that you can fill in the answers without having to retype the questions.
- Take a screen shot of the text from a webpage, do the conversion and then quote portions of the text in research papers.
- Use some of Google's other free tools, such as Voice Typing to make additions by speaking to the computer and letting it type for you or use Add ons, such as Easy Bib that help you quickly create a bibliography or Reader that helps you edit by reading your text document aloud.
