10 ways I use Google Forms in my tablet classroom Image courtesy of TBR Mohamed El-Ashiry takes a look at ways of using Google Forms in the classroom. I am one of Google Forms‘ biggest fans! I have many reasons to love the service, and I use it in many different ways. While there have been many other advantages, the biggest advantage of using Google Forms in my classroom is being able to give students immediate feedback. I often connect my tablet to the projector, and hide the column displaying the names of students submitting their responses (whether they are responding to a test, or self-assessment or peer-assessment, etc.). In my classroom, students have had tablets (iPads) for two years now. 1. Student self-assessment is a very powerful tool in any classroom. 2. Peer-assessment also plays a critical role in any classroom. 3. In my classes, whenever I assign the students a major assessment task, I show them them the rubric that will be used to assess their work. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Like this: Like Loading...

Handy Google Drive Tip for Teachers- Moving Docs to Multiple Folders July 25, 2014 Here is an excellent Google Drive tip I learned today from Shake Up Learning. As much as I love Google Drive and spend so much time discovering its hidden tricks and features I must say that this new tip has completely taken me by surprise and I am not sure how I missed it. This new tip allows you to move Google Drive files, documents, presentations and spreadsheets into multiple folders. For instance, you have tow folders for two separate classes and you want to share a document you have written with both classes. This is how to do it: Open the document you want to share and then click on the folder icon. Alternatively, you don't have to open the document to do this. Now if you want to add the document to a single folder you can simply select the name of the folder and click add to but if you want to add it to multiple folders, hold the control key (Windows) or the command key (Mac) as you click to select multiple folders.
