Educators can use Google Forms as
a way to help students dig deeper into their learning. Whether the
student is creating the actual survey, taking the survey, or analyzing the
results, they are gaining a deeper understanding of the curriculum.
Teachers can create quizzes using Google Forms. After the students have
taken the quiz, the teacher can quickly grade the quiz using the add-on
Flubaroo. Flubaroo takes about 3 minutes
to set up, which saves hours in correcting and analyzing time. Flubaroo averages
the question results, gives a total score and average per student, and will even
email the results to the student.
Google Forms are also a great way to interact, communicate, and get feedback
from parents. What better way to ask for parent volunteers for a field trip,
class party, or class rotations than building a survey? Teachers could create the form, email it out
to parents, and then look at the responses.
This not only saves trees, but it also saves class time by not having to
pass out and collect papers.
There are many ways that Google Forms can impact Education. I have
only mentioned a few. Take a look at these
