  • If you have taken one of our webinars previously, raise your hand now. For those of you who have not participated before, I will explain how it all works.
  • Gay and Kristie will be monitoring the chat window tonight. The moderators can see everything so watch what you say! If you have a question, you can type it in the chat window. You may raise your hand at anytime as well and we will pause to answer your question. We do need everyone to sign in, so go to the chat window and type in your name and your school. REMIND TO VIEW SCALE TO FIT.
  • If you have a microphone, we definitely want to hear from you! If you have a mic, give me the green check in the polling area and the moderators will give you mic privileges. The microphone works just like an old-fashioned walkie talkie. Just make sure you click the microphone button when you want to talk and then click it again when you are done. If you leave your mic on, we will get feedback. Just raise your hand first so we know you are ready to talk. Any questions so far? Let’s begin.
  • In order to get credit tonight, you must fully participate in the webinar. It’s fun and easy. We will be asking for your feedback throughout the session and you will have an assignment at the end. You will also need to complete a survey as well. We will give you that information at the end of the session. You have to have a Google Account created, so if you have not done that already, please do so at the end of the session so you can complete your assignment. You’re free to take notes, but if you prefer to just watch, that’s ok. This presentation will be shared with you on Google Docs at the end of the class and everything we have discussed will be included.
  • Since you are here, you must have an interest in using forms in your classroom. Google forms are different. They’re like forms on steroids! Using google forms will allow you to collect all that first day information the easy way! The best part? It’s paperless and can be stored online! Before you get started, though, you need a basic understanding of Google Docs.

Before you get started, though, you need a basic understanding of Google Docs.
  • In short, Google docs is in the “clouds”. You may have heard the term “cloud computing” or files in the “clouds”. Cloud computing is the use of the Internet for the tasks you perform on your computer. All that means is that files and data are created and stored on the Internet. The "cloud" represents the Internet and Google just happens to be one of the many Cloud Computing services that allow for creation and storage of your documents. I like Google because it started this whole concept and it is super easy and super friendly to education. Google docs is a fully productive office suite in which you can create documents (like Word), spreadsheets (like Excel), presentations (like Powerpoint) and drawings (mindmaps, diagrams, etc. and interactive forms. Today, I am going to show you how you can create your own form and provide you with suggestions and links to help you use this tool in the classroom. I will also provide you with resources and premade form templates so that you can use your forms on day one!
  • What are the best things about Google Forms? First, it is template based. You don’t need to know any kind of formatting, coding, nothing! There’s no software to download. ifAs long as you know what kind of information you want to see, then you can make a form in a matter of minutes. Once the form is created, you can access the results in real time and even watch the results populate as they are submitted. You can choose to share those results if you want and even invite others to collaborate and discuss the results, all online, in real time. It’s completely and totally FREE!!!
  • What are the best things about Google Forms? Also mention that not all features work with all browsers. Installing Google Chrome will take care of all. Wait to install IE9 just yet or just use firefox. You may not have any issues, but if they arise you will know what to do.
  • Question: I need you to do two things so listen carefully BEFORE taking action. Raise your hand if you have a Google account. Do not raise your hand if you have not. Now, select the GREEN CHECK if you are already logged into Google. If you could not answer either question, select the red X. This is what my Google Docs looks like when I log in. I have two Google accounts and use them all the time. I am showing you my personal/professional combo. EXPLAIN THE FEATURES.
  • On your computer you probably have some sort of organization to storing your documents. This usually involves folders and sub folders. In Google Docs you can create My Collections for organizing your files. To create a new My Collections folder simply click on Create New on the Menu bar and choose Collection . Just drop and drag into the correct folder. It’s a simple drop and drag to move items into your collections.
  • Discuss the help files. Tonight’s session will not teach everything, but will provide the tools so that you can start creating, sharing and collaborating NOW.
  • Tinyurl.com/dragonvtc
  • Tinyurl.com/dragonvtc
  • Tinyurl.com/dragonvtc
  • Tinyurl.com/dragonvtc
  • I am going to show you how to create a basic form, but all the steps to creation of a document are the same whether you are creating a presentation, form, spreadsheet or drawing. If you type docs.google.com in your browser, it will take you right to Google Docs. If you are not logged in you will be prompted to do so. Once you are logged in you are ready to create. Click on CREATE New on the Menu bar and select which type of file you would like to create. Let’s create our first form.
  • Tinyurl.com/dragonvtc
  • Share my desktop and show how it’s done. Discuss the following when sharing desktop: upload a doc, revision, language, (basically the file menu.) Insert Comments (studetns make you a collaborator) A little different for forms. Works just like word but it has added tools and translation capablilities. Can go back and forth between types from one area. What did you think about that? Questions? Microphone? Happy Face/Confused face please.

  • Question? Check or X: Who would like to go paperless? Talk about printing from the actual doc not the file menu. Going Green, etc. Paperless.

  • Discuss the sharing and collaborative options in docs. A wonderful feature of Google Docs is the ability to share your work with others. You have many options to do this. You can give access to a document where the viewers are only able to read the document and not make any changes. You can also give access to a document where people can collaborate with you by making changes. You will be able to see the changes that each person has made to your document. In order to collaborate on a document the person you share the document with must have a Google Account. Otherwise they can only view the document.
  • Discuss the sharing and collaborative options in docs. Mention about the chat and be sure to talk about the revision history. Send link to Sobo’s, Hunt’s and Dennis Trailers Remind that this is done for all google docs.! Email too
  • Not only can you share, you can choose how to share. You can email certain persons, keep it completely private or decide for yourself. Discuss ownership briefly.
  • Talk about editing. Discuss about Sobo and what the kids did. But hooray for revision history
  • Teachers should create a My Collection for each class to help organize the documents they will have access to. Right click on any My Collection titles and you can Add Star. This is another way you can organize important files for access, just click on Starred under Home and only those files will be listed.
  • Share my desktop and show how it’s done. Feedback check.
  • Breakout session.
  • Breakout session. We have answers on Sherry’s form
