1:1 Classroom -- Head Over Heals with Google Forms

1:1 Classroom -- Head Over Heals with Google Forms | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it
I recently fell in love with a tech tool in a manner similar to the way in which I fall in love with classic titles on a bookshelf. These are titles I have read but for some reason or another the significance was lost until bam! Lightning strikes and I cannot put that book down. This is the case with Google Forms.
Gerald Carey's insight:

A very good article summarising the use of Google Forms in the classroom. The examples include: using it with substitution or relief teachers; getting students to state where they are at with their research; using it for pre- and post- quizzes.

Q&A Google Slides

Gerald Carey's insight:
This feature of Google Slides (Q&A) has been around for a while but I like this demonstration video because it shows how easy it is to use. You see it from the perspective of the presenter and the audience. It shows you how to highlight a question during the presentation and that you can turn the feature off at any time. Finally, it gives some examples of how it can be used in the classroom.

Gerald Carey's insight:

This is great news. Ditch That Textbook has had a look at Google Forms and come up with this amazing list of how to use forms in the classroom. It includes submitting work (of course) but you can also get it to send emails when students submit their work - and even find out who submitted their work late.

Other examples include: quick assessments, sign-outs and choose your own adventure.  Great work, Matt.

Why Teachers Should Be Using Google Docs in the Classroom

Why Teachers Should Be Using Google Docs in the Classroom | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it

The school district in which I work has introduced Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) as part of teachers’ professional development, and I chose to be in the digital literacy group, not because I was adept at using technology in the classroom, but because I was in serious need of a technological overhaul.

Not only has our team worked hard to implement effective use of online forums with students to increase their digital literacy and communication skills, but we have also investigated other Web 2.0 instructional methods, the use of Google Docs being one of them.
