As I do during this week every year, I am taking some time off to relax and prepare for the new year. Every day this week I will be featuring the most popular blog posts of the year. This was one of the most popular posts in August.
1. Manage classroom lending libraries. In other words, keep track of the stuff students and colleagues borrow from me.
2. Create self-grading quizzes. This can save a ton time grading formative assessments.
3. Create self-paced review activities. I often include videos within the review activities.
4. Make digital Break-out games. The data validation and go-to-section-based-on-answer logic makes this possible.
5. Collect contact information for participants in club activities. Likewise, collect and share (with permission) contact information for parents of students in club activities.
6. Create and manage sign-up sheets. You can set time limits and response quantity limits for your sign-up sheets.
7. Manage student blog entries.
8. Conduct surveys. I've conducted surveys to use as exit tickets from class and to get feedback from students at the end of a semester.
9. Organize group research projects. Google Forms can help your students keep track of who is doing which task(s) and who has done which task(s).
10. Manage donations of classroom supplies. Google Forms can help you keep track of donations and donation requests so that you don't end up with 98 glue sticks but nothing to actually glue.
