2. Think Google?+ 3. +Using Google in thelearning environment Google docs Google voice Google forms Google talk Google maps Google earth Gmail (more .the list goes onstorage, less spam) Google search 4. +Showcase one feature now: If you have a twitter account and are following #tmsydney youwill now see a link that I have tweeted out. Click on the link using either your SMART phones, tablets orlaptops (no need to sign in, feel free to complete while listening,takes 1-2 mins) 5. +Share, anyone with link (no log inrequired) THEN edit access, allowanyone to edit. 6. + For me to CREATE this form I require a google accountwhich gives me access to Gmail, You tube account and otherhandy features like blogger. Others who complete form do not require a googleaccount to complete (no sign in required) 7. +However. If you would like to use other features eg google presentationsas a collaborative exercise then participants DO require agoogle account/signing inJust like apower pointbut can workon it anytime,anywhere..egwith groupwork (sickstudent athome oroverseasprojects) 8. +Other advantage of signing in:If participants sign in youcan view the REVISIONHISTORY of theassignment. (who hascontributed and when- greatfor group work to seebalance of contributions) 9. +Google formsWhat is it?Basically thecollection andorganisation of informationHow do I use it? Gather data allergies, alternate emails, likes dislikes, previousschools, snapshot of learner, confidential info etc Pool ideas, can adapt, tests, quizzes, gather prior knowledgebefore starting a unit etc 10. +Google form All responses submitted in spreadsheet form- the creator canaccess this ANYHWERE, anytime logged into a Google account Need Gmail account- easy, free, HUGE storage, google translate Need to sign in to create form but not to use ie I can send link to astudent who opens form on a browser and wolla! Ready to go! Advantages?
