Google Drive instead of Google Docs Google Drive allows you to manage ALL of your files online (including your Google Docs) instead of just docs, presentations, forms, and spreadsheets. Keep everything, share everything. If you already used Google Docs, they will automatically be moved to your Google Drive. Editor: Madeleine Moody

What do you think… Social bookmarking is? How can this tool be used? Hannah Ward

This information can all be found at:

Facebook Groups for Schools Join Facebook Groups for Schools to connect with people at UNO for classes, clubs, etc.

Social bookmarking is something interesting that is online that involves sites such as Facebook and Pinterest.
