16 Ideas for Student Projects using Google Docs, Slides, and Forms

16 Ideas for Student Projects using Google Docs, Slides, and Forms | Keeping up with Ed Tech | Scoop.it
As you probably know, Google Drive is far more than a place to store files online. It also includes a suite of versatile creation tools, many of which perform the same functions as the ones we use in other spaces. These include Google Docs, a word processing program that behaves similarly to Microsoft Word, Google Slides, a presentation program similar to PowerPoint, and Google Forms, a survey-creation tool similar to Survey Monkey. Although Drive also includes other tools, these three are particularly useful for creating rigorous, academically robust projects. If your school uses Google Classroom or at least gives students access to Google Drive, your students are probably already using these tools to write papers or create slideshow presentations, but there are other projects they could be doing that you may not have thought of.

Below I have listed 16 great ideas for projects using Google Docs, Slides, and Forms. (If you and your students want to learn more about how to use these apps, check out my Google Drive Basics course; more info at the end of this post!)

Steve Whitmore's curator insight, August 22, 8:09 AM
Some of these tools would be awesome to use with students for social emotional learning. The choose your own adventure idea would be great to teach about consequences. Creating the story would lead to rich discussions. The blogging feature might be nice for journaling.  What if students could tell their story in the format of a magazine? These tools allow for unlimited options for self-expression and socio-emotional learning.
