Must Have Google Apps  
All my brainstorming notes, blog ideas, work-related files are all stored in my Google Drive. This way I can access all my documents anytime and anywhere. I can't recall my life before Google Drive.

Is MSWord useful anymore?


As I logged into my Google Drive and opened my Google Docs, I noticed that Google users now have access to templates like resume, letter, report, and project proposal. This is amazing. Why would anyone ever want to use MSWord again? 


The best part of using my Google Docs or any Google Apps is that I can access it anytime and anywhere. I am never dependent on my computer's hard drive. All I ever need is an internet connection and any computer. 






Are you thinking of using Google Drive for work but not sure how to get started? Contact me and I'll help you become a Google Ninja.

What is your collaboration style?

As professionals, we often hear of the collaborative working environment. This got me thinking ... how often do we really engage in a collaborative work with our colleges. I think in many cases collaboration among educators and other professionals is still a work-in-progress. However, thanks to social media this is starting to shift. In my own experience, I have to say Twitter has taught me to be better at sharing and collaborating with others. 

So, what is your collaboration style?
