    I used part of that this summer when all I had for writing was an android tablet.

    We're going to be working on keyboard skills, but I'm undecided yet whether to use Office or the Google Docs. Anyone use both enough to have an opinion?

    EDIT: Pilot program is full. That didn't take long...

    I use both. Overall, I prefer using MS Word. It has more features and they are easier to use. That being said, I think that Google Docs has some benefits, one is that it is free. Collaborative writing is a great feature. Easy ability to save to a shared drive or the cloud is easier. The downside is that you have to be connected to the internet to use Google Docs.

    I think if one is using the basic features of word processing, Google Docs would be enough.
