Work gets done on day two at Yearbook West

Written by Susan Massy

A long day two has ended at Yearbook West. My editorial leadership group delved into the issues that come with being in charge, some problem solving and an intro to Google docs.

We had fun with all 45 of us editing and “commenting” simultaneously on one document. A great demonstration of how it might be used to collaborate in real time on editing, even when students are at home.

Finally we talked about improving writing. I have a great group which makes the time fly. Looking forward to tomorrow.
