This recording of an OK2Ask online professional development session from August 2016, opens in Adobe Connect. Google forms can support classroom instruction AND improve teacher productivity. You can use Google Forms to create surveys and quizzes; collect research data, and plan events. Unlike other "freemium" web-based form tools, Google Forms is completely free and allows for unlimited questions and responses, as well as logic branching. Once completed and shared, recipients can easily fill out and submit their responses. A Google form is automatically connected to a spreadsheet with the same title. When you send or share a form, recipients' responses will automatically be collected in that spreadsheet. As a result of this session and through individual follow-up, teachers will: (1) Explore the features of Google Forms; (2) Discover a variety of uses for Google Forms; and (3) Create a basic Google Form. Remember, it is OK2Ask'® questions at any time! This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional development session from August 2016, opens in Adobe Connect. No student wants to fail a quiz. Use Google Forms conditional branching to make every student successful on your next quiz. We all know that learners need feedback. To maximize the benefit from that feedback, it should be given immediately -- ideally after each question. Google forms can make that happen. Conditional branching is the ability to send a user to a different question (or a different page of questions) based on the answer the user supplied to a previous question. Wow, that makes your forms so much more functional. It is similar to the old 'choose your own adventure' books we knew and loved as children. Join us and take your Google Form to the next level with branching! As a result of this session and through individual follow-up, teachers will: 1. Create a Google Form; 2. Use branching to facilitate instant remediation and feedback; and 3. Discuss tips and tricks for the management of forms. Remember, it is OK2Ask''® questions at any time! This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.
