    You will now be able to upload and download your work to this Google account. When you work on a computer, anywhere, you merely need to login to Google and work on a document and then upload it to the account so you can work on it from another computer. This is how you will share your work with me and your other teachers.

    Be sure to add me, tnellen@tnellen.com, as a collaborator for your documents so that I can see them and add comments.

    Okay, now add the "Harrison Bergeron" document to your account and make me the collaborator.

    Finally you will need to add your email to the class email list group. See Ted.
