Educational Widgets for Google Docs

I’ve just finished reading an article on the Google Docs blog : Spotlight on Developers: Educational Spreadsheet Gadgets it highlighted a few gadgets that you can now use within Google Docs to create resources that would be helpful in the classroom.

They had links to making flashcards, creating an interactive word game, and making a word search. All of these require you to have a Google account, the links take you to a blank document with the widget already in there, or you can add the widget yourself from the Insert > Widget menu.
