I have started a weekly series on our school district's edtech blog called "Tools You Can Use." Here is a link to my post this week -
Tools You Can Use – Week of January 23, 2012 – Google Forms:
If you aren’t aware of Tom Barrett and his “Interesting Ways” series, then you are missing out on a tremendous resource that is actually a crowd-sourced collection of examples on how you can utilize various technology tools in your classroom.
One that I stumbled across this weekend was a collection of examples on how you can use Google Forms in your classroom.
Here are some of the examples that you can use right away in your classroom:
Exit Ticket/Check for Understanding
Grade Student Presentations
Anonymous Course Evaluations
Do Away With Scantron Sheets/Multiple Choice Assessments
Don’t forget to check out all of the “Interesting Ways” that Tom has started. And add on if you have more ways to share how to use these resources!
