Copy a Google Form ^ Teacher Tech ^ by Alice Keeler | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it
If you have created a Google Form it can be tricky to allow others to make a copy of your Google Form. If you have created a Google Form to collect attendance, as a daily warm up or a formative assessment you may want to share what you made with another teacher. Most likely you do not want other teachers data mixed in with your data. You want the teachers to copy your Forms not use your Forms.

PDF my Google Drive Folder ^ Teacher Tech ^ by Alice Keeler | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it
In response to a tweet asking how to print a folder of student work in Google Drive I wrote a script that will list all the files in a folder in your Google Drive and create a PDF. The advantage to this is you can download all of the PDF’s at once to your computer. Usually, if you select a collection of files on your computer and choose to print them, you can print multiple files at once.

Create a list of files in your Google Drive folder.
Create a list of the URL’s to the files to make sharing easier.
Create a PDF of each file.

8 Creative Uses of Google Drawings You Shouldn’t Ignore

8 Creative Uses of Google Drawings You Shouldn’t Ignore | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it

"Did you ever click the bright red "New" button inside your Google Drive?

 

"Google Drawings isn't at the forefront of tools. The limelight is reserved for Docs, Sheets, and Slides. But let's do a reawakening of sorts and click on More to go to the "neglected" siblings. We have seen the usefulness of Google Forms. It's time to appreciate the versatility of Google Drawings.

 

"Google Drawings is the freshest among all Google Drive tools. It is not a full-blownimage editor like MS Paint. But the graphic editor is more powerful for one simple fact – it is a real-time collaborative application."

Microsoft's next surprise is free Office for iPad, iPhone, and Android - The Verge

Microsoft's next surprise is free Office for iPad, iPhone, and Android - The Verge | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it

 - THE VergeMicrosoft's Office suite for iPad, iPhone, and Android is now free. In a surprise move, the software giant is shaking up its mobile Office strategy to keep consumers hooked to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents. Starting today, you'll no longer need an Office 365 subscription to edit documents or store them in the cloud. The move comes just days after Microsoft announced a strategic partnership with Dropbox to integrate the cloud storage service into Office across desktop, mobile, and the web. You can now download Office for iPad and store all your documents on Dropbox without paying Microsoft anything at all. Microsoft is also releasing a brand new iPhone app today, alongside a preview of Office for Android tablets, all with Dropbox integration.

It's true! And it works! Have tried it out - now there's no excuse not to work... To be honest, I do find Apple Pages to be a little more user-friendly on my iPad, and it also allows one to save one's documents as Word documents which is what I've being doing. So it's understandable why Microsoft has gone this route.

"Visualead is fantastic site that let’s users combine QR codes with images.  You can upload any picture that you want and place your QR code right on top of it.  Not only is it a great way to energize traditional black and white QR codes, adding images can help students distinguish between QR codes in different subject areas or lessons.  This is perfect for younger students or English Language Learners.  Whether you choose a picture of a globe for a Social Studies website or a number to match up to a question on an activity sheet, you’ll find lots of times to add images to your QR codes!"
