I wasn't aware that OpenOffice was already on our laptop. I wonder if it is on the students' computers/labs? Two main advantages to both OpenOffice and Google Doc. are it is free and accessible to anywhere, as long as there is Internet--- a disadvantage. I can see how it would be useful in the classroom where students need to collaborate on a project. I looked over the Native Language Confederation of OpenOffice and that was interesting. I have relatives in Iran who are learning English and I could help them edit their English projects using this tool, so students actually could work collaboratively around the world- cool!
