Recently I facilitated a Google Forms workshop entitled, “Google Forms Filling a Variety of Needs”. On the opening day a Google Slide Jeopardy Game was presented with a little twist. All participants used a Google Form as a Remote Answer Clicker for the game. When a game like this is used in the classroom its function is for accessing prior knowledge along with engaging the students.

Generic Response Clicker
The Generic response clicker could be used at anytime. Teachers do not have to plan ahead. They can write a question on the Interactive Whiteboard give it a code. This way the teacher knows what question the student answered. Teacher takes a screen capture of the questions. Instant off the cuff assessment for those moments when you are unsure what the students understand.
The student doesn’t need a laptop to access the Google Forms Response Clicker. Thankfully Google Forms can be used on a variety of devices. This provides an opportunity to let your students use their smartphones, iPods, tablets and etc…
