Blog: Reflect on how you might use Google Forms 1)in your practice and 2) for your Touro action research/capstone project. What might be the best uses for your particular situation?
If you already have been using Google Forms in your practice, explain how you currently use them and what you might do to extend your knowledge to new applications/situations. Comment on at least 3 other peoples’ blogs.
I am very interested in using Google Forms with my second grade students. I would like to create tests for my students, such as pre and post tests. Google Forms is a great way to expose students to 21st century test taking as well as an efficient way of administering a test, collecting, and analyzing data.
The only way for my second graders to access Google Forms is by bringing them to the computer lab. In my classroom, there are only three Chrome Books available for students to use, so when I want all my students on a computer I have to reserve time in the computer lab.
I could also use Google Forms with my colleagues in order to get some feedback. I am interested in forming a "Garden Committee" at my school, and to quicken the process of implementing ideas created by the committee I could use Google Forms to get feedback from other teachers and staff members from the school.
I have thought about incorporating Google Forms into my research/capstone project. For example, I can use Google Forms to formulate a questionnaire for my students regarding their interest in digital storytelling.
I can also formulate a questionnaire for my Capstone audience (educators). I can embed a link on my website for educators to access, which will lead them to a questionnaire (created by Google Forms) regarding my research. In my presentation, I can have my audience placed with a device accessible to internet and have them interactively participate in my presentation via Google Forms.
So far, I have never used Google Forms other than the homework assignment for this class. However, over the past three years I have received numerous survey's from my administrators and from Professional Development courses and it wasn't until this class that I realized that the professional looking questionnaires were created easily using Google Forms. Thanks to this class I know how to access Google Forms. It was really easy to create a test and I look forward to incorporating it into my practice.
