Google Docs

Google Docs is an efficient tool to use and can be used in many different ways. Google Docs can be created, edited and uploaded to either be use for private and personal use.  Google Docs can be accessed anywhere in the world as long as there is internet connection and a Google account.  Google Docs can be used for personal use and professional use.  Personally, Google Docs can be used to help plan for trips and it would hold everyone accountable for the things they are responsible for bringing. Professionally, Chemist such as myself can and will use it to send written report of steps to preparing the samples and describing the results from the sample to managers and counterparts.  It will be much more efficient because managers and counterparts can edit the documents in "live" mode. As a team the organization can benefit from time efficiency because everything can be edited in a timely fashion and people can be held accountable to do their part. Google Docs can keep me organized and professional.  This tool is amazing with being able to work and access any time.

Google Spreadsheet

Google Spreadsheets is a tool where spreadsheets can be created, edited and uploaded to either be use for private and personal use and/or be shared with your network.  The main reason for Google Spreadsheet is because the accessibility and easiness of being able to send to anyone in the network which will be useful for live editions and/or corrections.  The importance of the tool is that it be uploaded from an existing spreadsheet in my laptop/personal computer hard drive and send it to my peers to provide input in regards their comments and questions will be able to be automatically inserted where I can view their input. How easy was it to use?  It is self explanatory to any one who is able to access the document.  Google Spreadsheets can only be accessed when a Google account is created.  I tested the Google Spreadsheet by creating a simple spreadsheet by clicking on a "new spreadsheet" and then from there I was able to type my information and saved it in my Google Drive.  My newly created spreadsheet would be saved on my Google Spreadsheet dashboard. Personally I see myself using Google Spreadsheet to keep my finances in order and being able to share it with my significant other.  Professionally, I would love to use this tool to send my data collection  and reports from preparing my chemical samples; then sending it to my manager and counterparts for their notification and information. From viewing the tool, anyone can use this tool and find it useful.  I found financial officers using it to keep their metrics and show their clients.  Business people tracking sales and sending them across the nation for input.  This tool is useful that it keeps it in one version instead of multiple. What do you want your Google tool to say about you? Google Spreadsheet would be able to track my work as a Chemist and share it with my manager so he can submit my work to be approved electronically in a seamless fashion. Privacy settings can be dictated by the creator of the spreadsheet.  Google Spreadsheet is versatile where it be accessed anywhere where there is internet connection and Google account.

Flowcharts

Flowcharts by Lovelycharts.com is an efficient tool to create flowcharts. Flowcharts are relevant to my career because I am a chemist and every step I take needs to be documented. Flow chart capabilities were very easy to use and easy to understand how to use it.  Basically, all I had to do was write things in the order I wanted to in the text box and move it to the software and then it creates the flow chart.  There is a variety of ways you can change the display of the flow chart.  Icons can be added.  The arrows/lines are flexible; thus, making easier to draw lines to connect. From my point of view, people used the flow charts to charter an business organization, build out projects and/or put a process together. Anybody can use this tool and can be beneficial to all. I would use it for work professionally because I have to chart all my processes as I run each sample. This will create the process for the next chemist who will run the sample. Flowcharts are not meant only for company's organizational structure but can be for anything show organization. 

Future web tools

Prezi Presentation is a tool I would potentially like to explore in the near future because I think there is a lot to offer.  I like the flexibility and versatility of the tool.  Flexibility because I can go anywhere in the world and be able to access the presentation as long as I have internet access. Versatility because the presentation tools are easy to use and can be very creative. Prezi presentations will give me an advantage because it will show my creative sensibility and solutions to accessibility.  In addition, Prezi presentations will represent me as a professional.

Google Keep is a tool I would also like to explore in the future because I believe it will keep me organized.  Being organized can keep me efficient with my time and help me balance my goal of work/life balance.  Google Keep is a tool that help me with my note taking as a chemist and keeping me on my toes with organization.  This tool will represent my time efficiency as well as a respected professional in the field when I turn in professional work.
