Write About is commonly integrated into student/teacher workflows where Google Docs and Google Classroom are being used. They are complimentary and also used for different purposes.
Write About has Google Integrations to support ease-of-use on Chromebooks, laptops, tablets and desktops:
- Single Sign On with Google account
- 1-click Share to Google Classroom integration
Outcomes for Write About are beyond word processing because of the built-in curricular content for student engagement and built-in audience for publishing to a community. Also, the writing and engagement data on Write About are specifically geared for teachers and students.
If you need simultaneous editing among multiple users, Google Docs is great for that. However, Write About seamlessly includes features like Audio Recording (for both publishing and feedback) that are not available with Google Docs.
Ultimately, Google is a productivity suite. Write About is a student writing community and publishing platform. All amazing opportunities for students!
