Using Google Docs is very much the same as using Microsoft Word or Pages. What's different about Google Docs is that every student can use their own Google accounts to connect to the notes you create on Google Docs. This not only eliminates the need to print and hand out countless handouts, but it also makes it less likely (if not impossible) for the students to lose their notes on a daily basis.
