Practical Ed Tech Tip of the Week – Creating Google Documents With a Landscape Orientation

New users of Google Drive frequently ask me “how do I change the orientation of a document?” To create a Google Document with a landscape orientation select “Page setup” from the “File” drop-down menu. In the “page setup” menu you can also adjust the default layout settings for your Google Documents. I have included screenshots of the process below.
