Creating a Treasure Trove of Google Form Uses

Posted by Tai Botkin on 9/19/2019

Many teachers use Google Forms for quizzes, tests and homework.  But there are numerous uses that we may not have even thought of yet.  I’d like to share some of the more creative uses for Google Forms this year and encourage you to contribute your ideas on, guess what, this Google Form!  At the end of the school year, I will share the results from that poll so that viewers can access that treasure trove. Just like we tell students, there are no bad ideas, so please share yours.  If you tend to be on the shy side, I will give you the option of remaining anonymous, although we would love to give you credit for your creative genius. I look forward to seeing your ideas and sending them out in May!

I will also be sharing simple ways in which I use forms or have seen them used to get the creative juices flowing.  

  • Lunch Poll

A simple bell ringer poll has become a user staple for Google Forms.  Why not make it easier to complete a necessary morning task? Students can select from options such as hot lunch, cold lunch, or I brought my lunch.  The results of the poll are automatically collected and can be sent to the cafeteria. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
