Oh yea.... copying and pasting probably won't work if you're going from an external document or picture. BUT there is a way to make it work!
I think I would like to set up a page that the parents can access for information from our room. I really don't know how - is that something you come and help teachers with?
I love this question! I work with a lot of teachers who don't consider themselves very techy, and for them, the idea of having a full-fledged website can often cause more stress than the solutions it provides. As I was driving to visit this particular teacher, I was scrolling through my mental Rolodex, trying to think of the simplest, most manageable solution for her. As I was assessing what she already knows, it occurred to me that she's been very brave about using her Google Apps for Education . . . and then it hit me: Google Docs.
into another document (size 12 Didact Gothic) without having to reformat the text to make it match what she's already written once it's in there?
