When you set a Google Document, Presentation, or Spreadsheet as “public” in the sharing menu it is available for anyone to find through a Google search. This can be a good thing. Millions of people are publicly sharing their Documents, Presentations, and Spreadsheets which in turn makes more more resources available to teachers and students. In the video that is embedded below I demonstrate how to search for publicly shared Google Documents, Presentations, and Spreadsheets.
