Google Forms can be used in many different ways to increase productivity and engagement. Teachers can use Google Forms to survey families at the beginning of the year. In this survey teachers can find out preferred methods of communication, access to technology/wifi at home, best times for meetings, etc. Then, teachers can create a Google Sheet to keep track of this information for each student’s family. It’s a convenient way to communicate with the students’ caregivers and can be used at other points in the year as well.
Google Forms can also be used to increase student engagement. Forms can be shared with students during lessons to reinforce comprehension. They can also be used for assessments or exit tickets after the lesson. Teachers can use this information to make small groups or to partner students for future assignments. Students can also create their own Google Forms as part of a project they’re working on. These forms can directly enhance the project.
