If you or your students have ipads or even phones in your class, download a QR code reader like Quickmark or QR Reader so that when you produce a QR code then the students can go straight to a form using the reader,
If your students have emails, it is easy to send a form out. Otherwise share via a link or QR code.
A really good way to get a link or QR code is to get the Chrome extension goo.gl URL shortener. When you have made the form live, you just click on the extension and you will get a short URL or a QR code to copy and paste, then print if you need to.
Some ways that you could use a form include:
- Collect information from your parents, students or teachers using a form (emails, addresses, phone numbers etc) .
- Take orders for a fundraiser (multiple collectors can get all of the orders in one place, easily)
- Organise your EOTC trip (eliminate the need for those long letters that get sent home)
- Write about an image (insert the image into the form)
- Fill in feedback for student voice on a unit of work
- Hand in work by inserting a link into the form
- Do teacher observations which a specific purpose in mind (or walk throughs)
- Flip your class (add a video)
The nicest thing about forms is the way that the responses are organised into a spreadsheet. It is an awesome way to save time and organise. There are also a number of add ons that you can put into the response spreadsheet to help you even more. Like the Flubaroo add on which will self-mark short answer or multichoice questions for you.
Go on, give it a go! You will love forms.
