Google Live Hangout ~Wow!!!

G-Hangout w_Marine Biologist.png

Recently I had the opportunity to arrange a Google Live Hangout between students and a marine biologist. What an amazing experience especially hosting this during the last few weeks of school. This is a time of the year where a combination of factors distract students from maintaining their focus. It was amazing when the virtual guest appeared on the screen how quiet the classroom became. The students were focused on asking the questions they crafted and hearing what the marine biologist had to say. This session was wrapped up with a Google Form Exit Ticket where the students agreed the  Google Live Hangout was an AWESOME EXPERIENCE!!!

Print a Google Forms… It’s That Simple!

It is amazing to think in this digital oriented society there are still people who don’t own digital devices or have internet service. Teacher’s no need to sweat this one out for Google Forms can provided a paper copy for students. All you have to do is print the form. Yup! You heard me right.

When a Google Forms is printed the layout transforms to a simple black & white copy. All background designs disappear. The student marks bubbles and fills in the blank to answer questions. It’s hard to believe, but Google Forms supports both the paperless and paper Classrooms. Who can ask for more?

Give Students a Google Docs Exit Ticket Easy

Exploring different ways to integrate Google Doc for an “Intro to Google Doc” presentation guided me to creating this “Exit Ticket”.  Immediately I fell in love with the idea! The Google Doc lends itself as an easy to use support for all learning styles. Students simply click on the cell and type! If the student would like they can use “Voice Typing” to create their entry!

This is the sample of the Google Doc Exit Ticket:
