Imagine giving students the opportunity to learn anytime and anywhere. While 'ubiquity' is not a learning function per se, it is an overarching and desirable quality of tools that support project learning. From handheld devices to Web-based applications, look for the tools that help student be more mobile and learn wherever they are, whenever they want, and more frequently, with whomever they want

Why use a Google Doc?
Google Docs are a great tool for synchronous collaboration on a single document. With up to 10 editors adding to and changing any part of the document at anytime, from any place, putting together a presentation, for example, can be interactive - and exportable to most word processing and spreadsheet file types.
