Welcome to our webinar on Google Forms. My name is Anne Anderson from PSESD, and I’m the director of the WLS Also standing by in this webinar is Conn McQuinn, PSESD’s ETSC Director He will be taking questions in the background (and taking over if I happen to suddenly keel over…)
This slide shows how to participate via the GoToWebinar control panel, which is on the right of your screen. Move mouse over the Grab Tab Clicks 1, 2, and 3 By clicking the orange arrow, you can open and close your control Panel Click 4 From the View Menu you can also set the Control Panel not to auto-hide when inactive if you prefer to keep it always open. Click 5 The Audio pane provides audio information. (If the organizer has given attendees a choice) By default you have joined the Webinar via Mic & Speakers. Click 6 Click Audio Setup to select your computer speaker or headset devices. Clicks 4, 5 and 6 If you prefer, you can join the audio via telephone by selecting Use Telephone, and the dial-in information will be displayed, including an Audio PIN. Click 7 During (at the end, etc.) the presentation, you have the ability to send questions to our Webinar staff through the Questions pane. Simply type in your question and click send. Click 8 During the presentation we may ask you to answer a question by raising your hand. This option is located on the Grab Tab. Click 9 and 10 We will address Q&A throughout the session today.
Please use the hand raise button on the control panel for this question. I’ll give you just a little time to click in your answer if needed. This is not an evaluation! It’s just to give me an idea of the experience level in this group <<Participants will click the hand raise button on the grab tab of the control panel to answer. The presenter can see the hands by watching the attendee window. After 10 seconds or so, say you are going to stop and put all the hands down. Click the all hands down button>>
So, What is Google Forms? Read slide There is no html or web page creation experience needed I have found that it’s pretty easy to figure out and intuitive Once you know the basics, you’ll be able to add variations to your form, to customize it and add more flexibility Google Forms can be very applicable to the classroom, and we’ll be showing several examples It also is adaptable to an iPad for walking around the classroom and making observations, for example
Here is our agenda for today
I have organized the material for this webinar in an application called Live Binder, that lets you upload documents and show websites in a tabbed format. It’s free, by the way. Just look up Live Binder.com This will allow you to follow along and interact with some of the forms I’ll be showing you It also will be available for you to access later for future reference. So we’ll be going back and forth between this website and the GoToWebinar icon—I’ll tell you when to go to the livebinder site. Let’s visit the site now, and then I would suggest your bookmarking it This presentation will be mostly demonstration with some interactivity. You won’t be able to have the opportunity to create a Google Form during this hour Not to say that you couldn’t, but in this webinar format, I can’t look over your shoulders and help you. So assuming everyone has typed in this link, I’ll now go there myself
This Live Binder has 5 tabs: Welcome Page, Genius Quiz (we’ll go to in a second), Directions (for future reference), Examples (to look at), and a tab for our Summary Now I’d like you to select the 2 nd tab and take the Genius Quiz. When you’re done, hit Submit Switch back to GoToWEbinar icon, and I’ll show you results After a couple of minutes, show spreadsheet Go over correct answers With a Google form, there’s always a Google spreadsheet tied to it, collecting the information as it comes in Each column represents a different field of information—in this case, a different question Each row represents a different record, in this case, a different person submitting a form What’s neat about this is that you can collect the data from a form and see it coming in in Real Time. The data is there for you to do with as you wish. One application I saw was to take the data and paste it into Wordle, a word cloud free application. There you can see how certain words stand out, perhaps in a book discussion. You can also copy the data into Microsoft Excel, or even save it as a an Excel document. You can make charts with the data, either here or in Excel. You can see a summary of the responses on one page: Form / Summary of Responses Show conditional formatting – You’ll notice that some of the answers came in as different colors. I applied conditional formatting to the spreadsheet that will display correct answers.
So now, I’ll demonstrate by going through the 10 steps in creating a Google Form. Our form will be a Class Survey Name – Text Grade Taught - What grade band do you primarily teach? K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12, Other – Multiple Choice Choose from a List – Which ESD are you from? What is your experience with Google Forms? – Range Use it every day TO Never Touch It Demonstrate: Choose a theme Email the form Edit confirmation Share Make a tinyurl Publish / Embed on a web page Show embedding code – WLS page example
Read I’ve also created a Sharing Form for you to use beyond this class. If you’ve created a survey you’d like others to check out, post here. The sharing link will display everyone’s results.
Thank you for coming today! I hope you’ve gained some ideas that you can take back to the classroom!
