If you have ever started a project in a Google App that you are using for the first time you know that learning all of the options can be a little daunting. To address this issue a lot of websites have been creating “cheat sheets” that give you an easy visual way to provide you and your students with all of the tips, tricks and how-to information to become a GAFE expert. Below are the two best sites for Google Cheat Sheets along with links for each cheat sheet:
- Shake-up Learning is a great blog by Kasey Bell, an award winning digital learning consultant. I believe that her cheat sheets are exceptional because they are very easy to read, include all the information you would need and are very easy to understand. In addition to an ebook Google Cheat Sheets (that you get free if you subscribe to her blog) you can also download PDF versions of each of her cheat sheets.
- Google Apps Learning Center is Google Office Training website with tutorials on all their apps and a nice “tips” section for Google Apps users. They also have cheat sheets for each application and for google mail, calendar, hangouts, etc. They do not go as in-depth as Shake-up Learning’s Cheat Sheets but they do have the advantage of being all on one page and being very clutter free visually.
