Let’s kick off the 2019-20 Tech Tuesday Tips with a quick Google Forms tip.
I LOOOOOOOOVE Google Forms! They make things like creating registration forms, surveys, and quizzes so very easy. What I don’t like is that sometimes when you hit that new question button, the question doesn’t appear where you think it should. You can use Google Forms keyboard shortcuts to add a new question and move questions around.
Google Forms is one of my favorite G Suite apps. Why? It is just so useful for many things.
Maybe you need a training evaluation… online Voting for Homecoming King/ Queen… an easy Registration Form… collecting Student IEP data… a quick Discipline Form… or a Reading Log. Not to mention the awesomeness of self-grading quizzes.
All these things and more are possible with Google Forms.
One of the biggest problems is that we have so darn many Forms cluttering up our Google Drive. Let’s say I have my students complete a weekly reading log. If I’m teaching reading to three groups of students, times 36 weeks… that’s potentially 100+ forms that I will create.
There are several ways to create a new Google file. You can do it using the plus sign in Google Drive… or start a new document from a current one using the File menu… or go to docs.google.com/create.
Now there is a super easy way to start a new Google file… and it’s (dot) new!
Summer is almost here! It’s a great time to relax, recharge and yes, even level up your technology proficiency. While Tech Tips Tuesday is going on our annual break, we wanted to leave you with some summer professional development opportunities.
