Commenting Added to Google Spreadsheets

Being able to tie comments to parts of Google Documents and Google Presentations is a useful feature when peer editing or collaborating to create something new. Now that feature is available in Google Spreadsheets too. This week Google announced that you can now tie comments to specific cells in your spreadsheets. To comment on a cell just click on it then select "comment"  from the "insert" menu in your spreadsheet.

Applications for Education
Commenting on cells in a spreadsheet could be useful for discussions about information you've collected in a Google Form. For example, if you asked parents to submit questions or feedback at your school's open house night and want to have discussions with your colleagues about the comments collected, the commenting in spreadsheets option could be useful for that.
