Looking for your Google documents? They are still located within your gmail. They can be found under Drive. Drive is found on the top toolbar in the same place you would find documents. Drive has a cleaner look to shared documents. Out with the collections and in with folders. I hope the video below can help you maneuver through Google Drive a little easier.

Google Chrome

Welcome back to a new school year!  I know you have heard a lot about Google Chrome.  You've seen the emails encouraging you to use Chrome, but what is Google Chrome?  Google Chrome is simply an internet browser like Internet Explorer.  Google Chrome allows you to both search and/or input web address into the address bar.  Your bookmarks will transfer over from Internet Explorer, and the great part about Chrome is that it simply puts new pages you open up into tabs instead of opening all new windows.  If you see green videos while using Internet Explorer, simply switch over to Google Chrome and they will work fine.  Here is a short video on how to open chrome, transfer your bookmarks, and doing a simple search.
