Playback Speed:

In this activity, you will use a document to collect ideas and collaborate digitally about an event you want to plan.

Event planning can be a lot of work.

Before the event starts you may need to find a location, purchase supplies, and market the event to ensure good attendance.

Digital tools can make this process easier.

Think about some events you might like to plan.

Maybe you want to hold a fundraiser.

Or you could organize a family reunion; Or a business event.

It may help to think about events you have attended in the past.

Maybe you know of a recurring event that you could help plan and promote.

These videos will use a community yard sale as an example, but you should choose an event that you want to plan.

Once you’ve selected an event, you will use your document to track details and ideas.

To organize it, you’ll create headings and a table of contents.

Headings help organize information -- making documents easier to read and navigate.

A table of contents provides links to the headings, so readers can move quickly to a specific section.

To start, create a new document.

Go to google.com and sign in, if you haven’t already.

Open Google Drive.

Then, start a new Google Doc.

Name the document “Event Plan.”
