Google Forms is a great no-cost tool for creating any type of form, such as surveys and assessments. There are nearly endless possibilities for what it can be used for. In this video I show the basics of how to use Google Forms, by creating an intake form a middle school math teacher might give to incoming students:
With a computer in every classroom and access to one for every student at school and at home, Google Classroom provides a way for teachers and students to stay on the same page, encouraging learning and effective teacher-student communication. The video illustrates just how simple and helpful Classroom is for a student, from receiving the email to join the classroom to viewing assignments and due dates to emailing teachers and classmates with questions.
*For safety and legitimacy reasons, there is no way for a student or someone outside of a school or official organization to make a “classroom” (thus, this video focuses mainly on how Classroom looks to a student).
In high school, I was asked to do my first research project. I’d never done much research before, besides googling things I wanted to know, so when I was presented with a list of databases to look through for good sources, I had no idea how to start.
This video is a tutorial for using the Minuteman Library Network‘s online databases for research at a elementary and middle school level, so younger students can get a head start with learning how to find reliable information on the internet.
