Big Ideas About Technology & Learning: 5 Ways To Use Google Forms

Google Docs (see overview) is an application that allows users to create and share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations with all school stakeholders (students, parents, faculty & staff, administration, board, and community).

Google Forms is an application that allows users to create forms (interactive documents that facilitate data collection). All data entered into the form is automatically entered into a downloadable spreadsheet!

Imagine being able to collect data efficiently in the following ways, then having the time to analyze, synthesize, and strategize about how to use the resulting information ...

  1. Formative and Summative Assessments. Create a "warmup" problem to give at the beginning of class, then edit it during class to provide at mini-quiz - at the end of the same class.
  2. Survey Students. Create student inventories that allow you insight to their character, personality, and temperament. Use this knowledge to build productive relationships with your students!
  3. Teacher or Student Observations. Collect observation data into a spreadsheet that is ready to analyze as soon as observations are completed.
  4. Online Reading Record. Track your students' reading activity efficiently.
  5. Tracking Discipline Referrals. Allow all faculty and staff members to submit referrals into a centralized database. Eliminate lengthy, handwritten referrals that must be filed.
