Google Forms ~ Creative Use for Elementary Classrooms
Creative Use of Google Forms In an Elementary Classroom
A sweet 1st-grade teacher in my building, Melissa, developed a creative and extremely practical way to use Google Forms that I just had to share with you! She had a problem with those “Frequent Flyer” restroom loiterers that were asking to use the restroom during work time. I know,….we all have them, however, she was looking for a way to capture data around which kids left at certain times of the day. I giggled in delight as she shared her results with me this week.
What she came up with was brilliant! She placed two items by her door, a QR code sign and an old phone loaded with a QR code reader app. She taught the kids to scan the app and select their name when they left for the restroom which documented who left and what subject they were missing.
If you look closely, one student seems to be the winner of the “Frequent Flyer” Award. She laughed and stated that first graders take a while to learn to be sneaky enough to simply select a classmate’s name instead of their own when they leave, but until then, she will enjoy the raw data.
Does this remind you of any other practical data you may want to collect using Google Forms?
