Week 15 Focus: Three ways to use Google Docs in your classroom
What's in it for me?
- Catapult yourself into the 21st Century...
- Offer your students more engaging lessons
You could potentially place 5/6 pieces of differentiated work online, give students a link in groups, and ask them to access and annotate different pieces of work to really show progress during a lesson, for example.
Students could also potentially create their own document and feedback to each other for homework, too.
For those of you that filled out the L&T audit recently- this was via Google Forms. This offers an incredibly useful way of distributing questions to students for quick feedback- this could be anything from where they are struggling with their lessons, right up to what their opinions of their lessons in, for useful teacher feedback.
The easy Drag and Drop editor allows you to ask a range of question types (text/multiple choice/scale) and compile individual and collective responses for analysis. Again, ask ASA if you have any questions.
You could also share a document with students and ask them to track their own progress, perhaps with their coursework if you break parts down into different columns, and ask them to RAG their progress on different aspects, or even their progress through a book they are reading.
