5 Time-Saving Ways Teachers Can Use Google Forms

5 Time-Saving Ways Teachers Can Use Google Forms
One of my favorite features of Google Drive is Google Forms. If you’re unfamiliar with this, think of it as a way to create quick surveys that can be used for a number of applications. Google automatically aggregates this data into a Google Spreadsheet, making forms a great way to quickly collect and share information. Collect Contact Information At the beginning of the year, I find that a great ice-breaker with my students is to share a Google Form that asks their name, contact information, and something unique and interesting about themselves. Similarly, it is often necessary to collect information from parents for special events. Bell Ringer & Exit Ticket Activities Google Forms are a great medium to engage students in bell ringer and exit ticket activities (a means to gauge what a student has learned at the end of a lesson). Collect Homework Collecting homework is often an onerous task. Survey & Check-In with Students Creating Rubrics Related:  MAITRISER LA SUITE BUREAUTIQUE GOOGLEGoogle

Vous trouverez cette option en vous rendant dans le Menu Outils puis dans les Préférences. Idéal aussi pour les caractères spéciaux dont la saisie n’est pas toujours évidente à mémoriser.

Google Forms in Education | Edcentric Google Forms in Education Though Google Docs has permeated through education over the last five years, Google Forms is still relatively new to most educators. Forms can be used by students, teachers, administrators, and other staff members. Before giving examples of how educators can use Google Forms, it is important to give a brief introduction. Google Forms is essentially a survey tool; however, it can be used for assessment. Teachers There are many ways that teachers can use Google Forms, from assessments to polling student interest on certain topics (Google Moderator will do something similar).

4 Important Google Docs' Features for Student Researchers October 14, 2014 Google Drive is absolutely one of the best cloud tools out there. Its potential for education is evidently huge and that is why I have been writing a lot on it. 1-Research The research tool allows you to do research simultaneously as you are writing or editing your document. To access the research tab click on "tools" and select "research" The great thing about this Research tool is that it allows you to easily insert citations and links to your document. The same applies for citations, click on “cite” and Google Doc automatically inserts the citation according to the style you want ( MLA or APA, or Chicago). 2- Spelling Google Doc has an integrated spelling checker that automatically underlines any misspelled word. And if you find yourself repeating the same spelling error over and over, I would suggest that you add it to your personal Dictionary as shown below and from time to time try to have a look at those terms you added there and see if you can remember its spelling.

This is probably what distinguished this service from other powerful tools like Dropbox and Evernote.

Needless to mention the recent upgrade Google releases and which increased the free storage capacity to 15 GB .

A Powerful Google Forms Tool for Teachers November 7, 2014 Today, I am sharing with you a great Add-on to use on Google Forms. This is called FormLimiter and once installed will enable you to automatically limit the number of responses for a form you created. It basically sets "Google Forms to stop accepting responses after a maximum number of responses, at a specific date and time, or when a spreadsheet cell contains a specified value." FormLimiter is especially useful for creating time-bound assignments, event registrations with limited seats, quizzes and many more. Here are some screenshots provided by the developer to illustrate what you can do with FormLimiter: 1- Maximum number of responses Form evaluates on each new submission and shuts off once a limit has been reached. 2- - Specific date and time Timer will shut off form on that date, down to the minute. 3- Spreadsheet cell value equals specify a spreadsheet cell (e.g.

Quand vous ouvrirez Drive un nouveau bouton va progressivement faire son apparition dans le coin en haut à droite de votre tableau de bord. Cette barre latérale sera constituée de deux onglets : « Details » et « Activité ». Le déploiement de ces nouvelles fonctions annoncées sur un des blogs officiels de la firme est en cours de déploiement.
