Yesterday I attended a Google Chrome Book training and couldn't wait to share this idea one of the presenters shared. Why not use a Google Form during your Open House or Back to School Night?
Create a new Google Form with questions that fit your needs. I have created a sample here.
Using your link have the Google Form open on a few computers or laptops for parents to quickly fill out. This looks less intimidating to some parents compared to all the lengthy forms we usually have sitting out.
Create a little sign or have a post-it note instructing parents to select "Submit another response" for the next parent to complete the form.
At the end of the event you will have all of your students' information in one spreadsheet, already organized for you. Simply print out the spread sheet and add it to your teacher binder!
I bet your parents will also be impressed with your use of technology and thankful it's one less paper they have to fill out by hand.
For an upcoming post I am working on I am hoping you will help me out by completing the following Google Form :) Thanks!
