Tool #4 - Google Apps

I have used Google docs before and I have filled out tons of Google forms, but I didn't realize how simple they are to make yourself. I just made, edited and commented on a document and form. I think I will find myself using this in my personal life also!

Ways I want to use it for school:
  • As quiz for students during centers. 
  • To gather information from parents, but I am worried about not all of the parents having a computer.
  • As a quiz even if I were to print it out to give to the students, as all of the formatting is done for me. But I would love to know if there is a print view that takes out the unneeded log-in text, so if you know how let me know!
  • Google docs would be a great way to do lesson planning with the team so we don't have different versions floating around. 
  • As a way to survey teachers about school decisions or up coming events.
I also checked out BrainPOP. I've heard a bit about it in training sessions, and I am super excited we have access to it.

  1. I have found that Google Docs doesn't always keep the same look of a document (like a lesson plan) that it might look like in Word - but it is great collaborating!
