Google forms are really handy to use when embedded on your blog. I have used them for all sorts of things over the years. In September when we held our student council elections I embedded a form created for students to vote for their selections. This made it very easy to see who won the election and we didn't even have to count the votes.
Here is a form I created to get some feedback (and require some reflection) from my students after working with digital tools in my classroom. It is very easy to break down the data after using the forms.
Here are some other ideas to get you started:
- Use them as an assessment tool.
- Take a poll.
- Collect web site urls.
- Collect student emails/phone numbers.
- Collect parent emails/phone numbers.
- Sign ups for parent/teacher conferences.
If you have any to add please leave them in the comments section.
