How to use Google Drawings
One tool that I was reticent to use was Google Draw, an option that recently became available in Google Drive, because I couldn’t think of how it could be used in the classroom. I decided to tackle this part of Drive head-on and have found that it can be incredibly useful in all areas of the high school curriculum and can be embedded into a Google Doc or a Google Presentation very easily. This tutorial will show you around Google Drawings.
How to create a drawing
To create a drawing, click the red Create button while on the homepage of Google Drive:
Your drawing will open, along with your familiar white toolbar at the top of the page. I’ve retitled the drawing to “Sample Drawing.”
I used Google Drawings for quite a while before I realized that it’s possible to change the size of the default canvas. It’s pretty easy to do and is almost necessary if you’re working with a chart or diagram.
Tip: Unfortunately, there’s no stretch to fit option that would stretch out the objects you’ve already placed on the canvas, so you might want to alter the canvas size first.
