Google Apps in the Classroom
#4 Improve the Writing Process
With Docs, your students can work collaboratively from anywhere. Instead of having them print and hand in their rough drafts to mark over and over again with red pen, you can make comments directly in their Doc. This lets you to give students ongoing feedback. Another great feature to using Docs is Revision History. You can use this feature to hold students accountable for their work. By reviewing the revision history, you can easily see if students took your suggestions to heart or if all group members are putting in the effort required. Revision history is found in the File dropdown menu of Docs.
#8 Coordinate Partner-Teacher Conference Sign-ups
Google Sheets are great for scheduling. You can have parents sign up for parent-teacher conferences or other meetings by using a spreadsheet to make sure there is no double booking. It will save you from having to email back and forth to find a good time to meet. All the parent has to do is find a time that they are free, isn’t already taken, and type in their name.
#14 Survey Your Students
Use Google Forms to survey what students are interested in at the beginning of the year. Or, partway through the year, you can use a survey to gauge if students feel they are being challenged and learning new material. For a school party you can survey students on what they would like to eat. There are so many ways to use Forms.
This is just the beginning of what this resource covers. Google Apps can be used with students, other teachers, school administration, and parents. Download this great resource to explore the many uses of Google Apps.
