Free Technology for Teachers: Flubaroo Compared to the New Google Forms Auto-grading Feature

Free Technology for Teachers: Flubaroo Compared to the New Google Forms Auto-grading Feature | Google Apps in Schools | Scoop.it
On Monday Google Forms received an update that allows you to create automatically graded multiple choice and true/false quizzes. To do this just go into your Form's settings menu and select "quizzes." You can then specify point values for each multiple choice question in your Form. In that same menu you can enter answer explanations. The quizzes setting also gives you the option of letting students see their scores immediately after completing a quiz. The quizzes setting is convenient, but it is not as feature-laden as the Google Sheets Add-on called Flubaroo.

Great news for Google Drive users! Now Google presentation slides have two new features - widescreen format and customizable master slides. The article makes it easy to learn how to use the new features.

flea palmer's curator insight, October 10, 2013 6:35 AM

Two new useful features - widescreen (although this can be resized if not appropriate) and customisable master slides.

Google Drive provides many great options for easy access to administrative tasks on a mobile device. Edgalaxy provides a basic printable guide to using Google Drive on your computer (not the app) as a great starting point with its use.

I see a 'back to school with Google Docs' movement on the blogosphere.  It makes sense. Teachers have always been good bargain hunters.  Google Docs delivers value at the right price; Free!

Five Apps to Render your Google Drive Much More Powerful ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Google Apps in Schools | Scoop.it

"One of the distinctive features that sets Google Drive apart from the other competing cloud storage tools such as Dropbox is its ability to integrate third party apps and extensions. Google has made it possible for developers to create apps that would integrate with Google Drive to render its productivity more powerful.

 Chrome Drive store features a wide variety of such apps. However, today I am sharing with you 5 great apps that, I believe, are important for you to connect to your Google Drive. Check them out below and share with your colleagues."

"Google Forms is one of the potent services Google provides for free for its users. Using Google Forms, you can very easily and without the need for any advanced technology knowledge create all kinds of forms to use with your students from contact forms to quizzes and polls. Since its inception a few years ago, Google Forms has undergone some major updates and the last one in this regard is enabling users to embed pictures and images into forms."

I haven't used Google forms in a while and this is a reminder to check out the new services it has on offer. You can now embed images, so quiz making just got a whole lot better.

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, August 30, 2013 3:37 AM

A useful video tutorial here, just over 16 minutes long. It runs through the basics of using Google drive and how you can use it to collaborate with others. It also touches on Google Hangout.

 

I use Google Drive with my students as a writing space because I teach English via Skype. It suits our needs perfectly. Students create several folders e.g. some are homework spaces; collaborative areas such as wikis; creative writing pages and as a virtual space that we can jump into during the lesson to work on activities. It works for us. As a teacher I can dip into shared spaces at any time and guide and support learning which is a real advantage.

flea palmer's curator insight, August 30, 2013 6:56 AM

This is a really thorough tutorial and very timely as I'm currently exploring using Google Drive with students. Our dispersed team of Learning Technologists already use it for collaboration but there is not much use as yet by our academics and students. The ability to be able to integrate Drive with Google Hangouts is really powerful and has the potential to be a great tool for supporting Distance Learning.
