Technology in the Classroom: 10 Ways to Use Google Forms

Although in existence for what seems like forever, Google Forms is a technology in the classroom constant that can help you with many, many classroom issues. Recent upgrades, in fact, have made it virtually invaluable!

With that in mind, frequent contributing writer Jordan Catapano, himself a seasoned high school English teacher based in the Chicago suburbs, takes a look at ten major ways that Google Forms has transformed many aspects of traditional learning.

Jordan’s aspects include:

  • Formative Assessments
  • Supplies and Appointments
  • Student-Driven Surveys
  • Peer Reviews and Feedback
  •  Entry and Exit Tickets
  •  And More!

Jordan sums up his article like this, in a paragraph with the heading Compare and Contrast Rankings: “As individuals or in groups, students can vote or rank various ideas. For example, you want to ask students, “Who is the most immortal Greek god?”, “Who was the most successful U.S. President?”, they can use multiple choice or scale responses for voicing their choice. When all students’ subjective votes are viewed by the class, they can compare and contrast their rankings and find meaningful ways to defend their choices!”
