Brainstorming in gDocs

1) Set up a googledoc with your questions or provocations

2) Set the sharing options to open to all, can edit

3) Assign each child a color

4) Let them loose

There will be a flurry of fighting and jostling for position at the beginning, but once the comments start rolling in, it self-organizes.  The first time you try, it will not be smooth.  Stick with it.  Once you get the hang of it, it is a great activity.  This is a powerful way to collaborate, and a fun tool that kids love!
