There are lots of trends in education. However, using technology in the classroom is not one of them. Google Forms is just one-way teachers are making learning more meaningful and simplifying the process of teaching. In addition, Google Apps are actually making the lives of teachers less complicated while also benefiting the student.
What are Google Forms?
Benefits of Google Forms (in the classroom)
- Save Time – This is my favorite and could really be broken down into an entire blog post on its own. The primary way Forms save teachers time is by automatically grading quizzes and classroom activities. This is HUGE in the teacher world.
- Collect Data – Yes! Forms can collect data. As your students complete activities, you can export all results to a spreadsheet, and voila…instant data.
- Keep you Organized – Fewer papers means less to keep organized. You can use google forms to help manage your classroom. Send home a survey for parents or use them for a class poll…by reducing the number of papers you are using, you will be able to avoid that massive pile of papers on every teachers’ desk.
