Google Forms

This is a sample of a Google Form. It is very rough, but it is to give you the gist of how to show others in the class how to access and use the form you created. You can also share the form with others by sending it to them using email. Their email is available in the class contact form.

Here is a link to the simple form I created.

I have also embedded the form into the blog, using the embed code that is available from the More Actions options in Google Docs.

By the way, I found an example of an excellent way in which one school is using Google Forms to get feedback from students about books they would like to see the school library stock as well as other information. Once the forms are created, they are embedded right into a wiki where students can submit their replies. Check out this blog post about the project:

Community Conversations Using Google Forms, Docs, and Wiki to Connect Outside of Your School

  1. I have never used GoogleForms before, but I just read a fantastic post on how to use this application for reading and writing conferences with students:

    I LOVE the idea of being able to customize the forms depending on the areas I want to assess/work on with my students.

  2. Google Docs, Google forms are great tools that I now use on a regular basis. I am glad that I have been introduced to Google and understand how to use many of its features. I can’t imagine not using Google going forward. I am so happy to use a computer and not have to think about a flash drive. Recently I created a survey in forms that was sent through e-mail to staff. Updating office documents using Google Docs is great because everyone can log in make changes and all drafts are saved. Google has delivered another great tool that offers so many uses for educators.
