Viewing Templates Others Have Shared
|Sample Jeopardy templates in the public gallery|
The easiest way to get there is to use a direct link provided above (although you can also connect a "Template Gallery" app in Google Drive or use the File -> New -> From Template option within a Google file).
Some that you might find useful are:
- game templates in Google Slides (like Jeopardy)
- graphic organizers (like Thinking Maps in our CCSD gallery - private)
- lab reports
- surveys or evaluation forms
- Cornell notes
Sharing Templates That You've CreatedIf you want to "gift" something that you have created (ISTE-T.2, "Design and Develop Digital Age Learning Experiences & Assessments"), currently you can submit it to the template gallery, or you can share by using the shared link ("anyone with the link" or "publicly available on the web"). The slick trick for this to change the end of the URL so it will force a copy. That means the person won't have to go through the step of "Make a Copy."
How do you force a copy? Change the URL by replacing "edit" and anything after it with "copy":
Original shared URL: https://docs.google.com/document/d/13IjW80b6uSBNV-XaVA-FR-VGOQ1X39jGYJFdi2jqFCA/edit?usp=sharing
Forced Copy URL: https://docs.google.com/document/d/13IjW80b6uSBNV-XaVA-FR-VGOQ1X39jGYJFdi2jqFCA/copy

Where can I learn more?
Google has recently added some new templates for Google Apps, which isn't the same thing as public template galleries. For more information, see their support article: https://support.google.com/drive/answer/148833?hl=en.
