Google Drawing

Google Drawing is a digital program with which you can create, share, and edit drawings, charts, diagrams, and images. It is primarily Internet-based. Google Drawing is saved in the cloud, specifically, in Google Drive, and can be accessed from a tablet or computer with or without an Internet connection. Google Drawing can be extended with third-party add-ons.

One of the most powerful features of Google Drawing and other Google applications is that multiple people can work on the same drawing at the same time. This is a huge plus for education. It is possible to share documents with anyone for viewing or editing.

You can add text, shapes, arrows, scribbles, and images to enhance a diagram or painting. You can layout content with alignment guides, snap to grid, and auto distribution.

Once you have completed a drawing, you can easily add it to your other Google documents. It is possible to begin a document by using a template. All edits are automatically saved. Revisions are saved and it is possible to see who made a specific edit.
