Updates from ISTE: 4 new tools to help teachers do what they do best

Updates from ISTE: 4 new tools to help teachers do what they do best | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it
Gerald Carey's insight:
These four tools have some great uses in Education but it is the third one in this list that I want to focus on.  It is an improvement to Google Forms when using multiple choice or true/false questions.  In the new version, students can get immediate feedback at the end of the quiz if you use the "Answer Key' option! Students simply click on the "View your score" button.
You can also give feedback for correct and incorrect answers. You still get the benefits of knowing what each student got and, apparently, it is integrated with Google Classroom.

Google Forms is a simple way to collect information, conduct surveys, and perform quick assessments. Forms can be shared with a link, via email, or embedded in a website. Responses can be viewed immediately with the option to save them to a spreadsheet or Google Sheet.
Gerald Carey's insight:

This teacher outlines 5 ways they use Google Forms at their school.  They include: flipping the classroom and checking that homework has been done; using Flubaroo to test students; PLC - personal learning checklist - students giving feedback on how they are going understanding key ideas; feedback - from students to teachers or from students to students; and measuring progress - using a 10 point scale to assess understanding at various points in the lesson.
