Do you have a student turn-in bin? Start to think about using Google Forms as your new Digital Turn-In Bin.
Google Forms are an amazing way to collect data or information. Teachers use forms to
- Collect parent information
- Create student assessments
- Self assessments
- Rubric checklists
- Respond to lit circle questions
- Sign up for office hours
- Reading logs
- Student surveys
- Peer edit responses – this way you can see what the students are writing
- Self reflection
- And on and on and on…
When you log into your Google Drive account and hit the Red Create button select Forms.
It will immediately prompt you to choose a template and name your document. Then you can start creating questions you want your students to answer. For the “Digital Turn-In Form” I would recommend asking their first and last name, period or subject, then offer a place for them to paste their link. Really no need for any other questions. The link students paste can be a Google Doc, a Website, a Blog Post, an Educreation Video, or anything you are doing in your classroom that offers a unique link. After students submit their form you have a nice spreadsheet with links right next to the students name and period.
