Google Forms is one of the tools I love working on. I have been using it to create all kinds of forms both for my class and for my readers here.

The 13 MUST Know Professional Development Websites for Teachers Professional Development is a life-long learning process that involves different activities including individual progress, continuing education, inservice education, peer collaboration, study groups, and peer coaching or mentoring. The importance of professional development lays in the fact that it is closely related to the overall quality of education and students achievements.

Given this huge weight of professional development in our life in general and in the intellectual one in particular, I am sharing with you some great resources that will help you grow professionally and expand your knowledge.

10 Great Tools to Integrate with your Google Docs Since Google officially changed Google Docs name to Google Drive and a number of updates have been introduced to improve its overall performance. One very recent update is an increase of cloud storage capacity to 15GB usable across Gmail, Drive, and Google Plus.

With the integration of these apps, users can now handle their files and documents ways not affordable by any other cloud storage tool out there. I have curated for you some interesting apps that are integrated into Google Drive and which you can install right from your Google Drive interface.

33 Digital Tools for Advancing Formative Assessment in the Classroom I came across a great blog post the other day – Formative Assessments Are Easier Than You Think – that told the firsthand account of a teacher, Steven Anderson, who implemented formative assessment in his classroom.

Use Shared Google Drive Folders to Distribute Assignments to Students One of the ways that I like to share documents, presentations, and files in Google Drive is through shared folders. By creating a shared folder anytime that I add a new item to it, all of the people that have access to the folder have access to the new item I've added to the folder. This is a great way to distribute assignment descriptors, lab report templates, grading rubrics, reading materials, or videos to your students. At the beginning of a semester create a folder, share it with your students, and then for the whole semester you can distribute assignments to students by just adding new content to the folder. The directions for creating a shared folder are posted below.
