Choose 3 to try!
- Have one person take notes using Google Docs at your next department meeting and share with all the guests.
- Ask students to collaborate on a Google Doc assignment and require them to share the document with you. View the "revision history" to monitor activity or progress.
- Give your next multiple choice quiz using forms in Google Docs. Quickly analyze and summarize data with the “Summary” feature.
- Create a Google form and give to students as an exit ticket.
- Start a new site in Google Sites that can be a template for a student eportfolio to showcase student work and progress throughout the year.
- Learn something new on the Google Apps YouTube channel! Click here.
- Create a presentation with one slide per student and give students permission to edit it. Then assign an activity — some quick Internet research, a writing prompt, an image search to find an example, etc. When they’re done, show the presentation on a projector. It’s student work instantly on display. (Ditchthattextbook.com)
- By adding Kaizena (click the red “Create” button and click “Connect more apps” to find Kaizena), teachers and students can add voice comments to documents in Google.
