I'm also a former science T

02:28 - Peggy George
I think Jenn could talk non-stop for days and never run out of things to share about tech tools and their uses! I always learn so much from her!!

02:37 - Jenn Judkins
Woohoo - welcome Suzie!

02:51 - Peggy George
Awesome introduction Maureen! Thanks so much!

03:35 - Peggy George
I didn't realize how many powerful ways we could use Google Forms for beyond quick surveys or assessments!

03:54 - @bcdtech Maureen
I could listen to Jenn and learn new things every day- so practical!

03:56 - Peggy George
Handout / Reference Doc:

05:08 - Peggy George
we use autocrat to send out our PD certificates for these webinars! makes it so efficient!!

05:11 - @bcdtech Maureen
I offered to make a walk thru form for our admin and they said it was a "union" thing and it would have to go thru then

05:13 - @bcdtech Maureen

05:16 - Peggy George
Hi Sawa! Welcome!

05:26 - Peggy George
that's really interesting Maureen!

05:28 - Sawa
Hi Peggy!

05:50 - Eileen
I would like to use forms for the National Geograhic Geography Bee with all of my 4th graders and 5th graders.

06:14 - stidmama
good morning!

06:17 - Peggy George
I wish I had this when I was a principal! I just created an Excel spreadsheet but it wasn't efficient at all!

06:31 - Peggy George
Hi Stidmama and Bella! So happy you could join us!!

07:13 - Bella
Happy to be here

07:15 - Peggy George
timeliness is so important with discipline management so this is an awesome process!

07:34 - @bcdtech Maureen
How can you get admin buy in on using digital tools? I get pushback from admin who are not comfortable with digital forms.

07:53 - Peggy George
Jenn created this Form Template to Copy for users who want to replicate what we are doing:

08:06 - Peggy George
you can make a copy of it and save it to edit for your own purposes :-)

08:15 - Susie @shighley
Being able to add notes via voice can be so handy

08:19 - Peggy George
Hi Maria b and Suzana! Welcome!

08:25 - Peggy George
great point Susie!!

08:55 - Peggy George
this is the form for the template I just share

08:57 - Leigh Zeitz from Univ of Iowa
The key to getting administrators interested in Google Forms is to make sure their secretaries are knowledgeable in it.

09:05 - @bcdtech Maureen
Question for later- I get asked all the time about security on google online forms. Can we use google forms for sped?

09:07 - Suzana Lazarevic Petrovic 2
Greetings from Serbia!

09:11 - Peggy George
Form Template to Copy for users who want to replicate what we are doing:

09:39 - Peggy George
everything is also in the Livebinder:

10:01 - @bcdtech Maureen
Jenn- can you tell people how to force others to make a copy?

10:19 - @bcdtech Maureen

11:05 - Peggy George
All of Jenn's handouts/resources are in this doc:

11:23 - Peggy George
Welcome Rawya!

11:51 - Peggy George
This will definitely be a recording I'll want to watch again so I can pause as we go along and try things out. :-)

12:01 - @bcdtech Maureen
Me too Peggy!

12:42 - Joan Kane
What is the link to the formMule template?

12:52 - Peggy George
really good to know how to require people to make a copy of your document so it can be editable :-)

14:18 - Dejan Kreculj
Hi everyone!

14:26 - Peggy George
cool!!! and so simple! just erase /edit and replace it with /copy!

14:30 - Peggy George
Welcome Dejan!

15:38 - Peggy George
thanks for explaining that Jenn

15:52 - Eileen

17:10 - Peggy George
hmm... never heard of FormsBranching

17:32 - @bcdtech Maureen
Peggy- you can use that for choose your own adventure stories

17:50 - Peggy George
brilliant Maureen!!! Good to know!

18:30 - Leigh Zeitz from Univ of Iowa
Have any of you used Google forms to make Choose your own adventure? If so, do you have examples?

18:44 - @bcdtech Maureen
I also like to use it for formative assessment- answer the question- if correct, they move to next question, if not they watch a video, go to a link, etc... to goo over the material again

18:55 - Peggy George
I'm assuming Admins means administrator creating the form and not a Google Drive permission thing. Right?

19:05 - Leigh Zeitz from Univ of Iowa
that is a great idea, Maureeen

19:17 - Peggy George
that would be so helpful Maureen!

19:18 - Leigh Zeitz from Univ of Iowa
Do you have an example, Maureen?

19:47 - @bcdtech Maureen
Not that I can share at the moment, but I will find some to give Peggy to go in the Livebinder

19:56 - Leigh Zeitz from Univ of Iowa

20:39 - stidmama
I am really enjoying this presentation! I am one of about three people who regularly use google forms and add-ons in my building. They are really useful sometimes!

21:25 - Peggy George
some great ideas for Google Forms here from DitchThatTextbook

21:35 - Peggy George
he includes Choose Your Own Adventure :-)

21:44 - @bcdtech Maureen
Thanks Peggy!

22:00 - Peggy George
thanks Maureen! I'll definitely add it to the Livebinder

22:09 - Leigh Zeitz from Univ of Iowa
Thanks, Peggy

22:44 - Peggy George
There are tons of links for resources for many different examples of Google Forms in our Livebinder today!

22:47 - @bcdtech Maureen
Here's the formative assessment info from Alice Keeler

23:19 - Peggy George
Both of these resources are outstanding for Google Form ideas

23:20 - Peggy George

23:31 - Peggy George
thanks Maureen!

23:47 - Leigh Zeitz from Univ of Iowa

23:50 - Bella
thanks Maureen and Peggy

24:42 - Peggy George
in the Livebinder now :-)

24:47 - Joan Kane
what was the Google shortcut for FormRanger?

25:10 - Peggy George
if you have any questions for Jenn please type them in the chat and Lorie will ask her during Q/A if she hasn't already answered them :-)

25:17 - Maria b 1
Get add-ons

26:28 - Joan Kane
Do you have the google shortcut for the FormRanger spreadsheet?

26:43 - Peggy George
Joan, not sure what you mean. Was it using the 3 dots on top right to select the add-on?

27:12 - Peggy George
Get formRanger Add On
3 dots top right corner
“dd Ons” search
Launch from “uzzle Piece”con

27:29 - Peggy George
Welcome Peg A!

27:39 - Leigh Zeitz from Univ of Iowa
thanks for the presentation, Jenn. I have to go but will return to watch the recording soon.

28:13 - Peggy George
Jenn has included all of these steps in her slides today

28:16 - Joan Kane
No, it was a link at the start of the presentation. There were 2 Google shortcuts, one to form that was copied and 1 to the FormRanger spreadsheet she s using now. Hard to follow along without it.

28:50 - Joan Kane
It's the spreadsheet with the values for the form.

28:50 - Peggy George

28:56 - Peggy George
that's the link to her slides

29:40 - @bcdtech Maureen
Do you have a way to auto-update the spreadsheets that you use in your formranger... hooked to SIS? or?

29:41 - Peggy George
Copy these template Files to Google Drive:
Form template:
formRanger Lists template:

30:37 - Peggy George
so handy to have those reasons for referral already provided!!! some are very common :-)

30:44 - Joan Kane
Found it on slide 7

31:23 - Peggy George
great Joan! Those are the links I posted just above :-)

32:01 - @bcdtech Maureen
Our school uses PBIS and some online data collection thing- is there a way to hook this info to that sort of thing?

32:05 - Peggy George
If you're not an administrator you might want to share this recording and resources with your principal. :-)

34:23 - Peggy George
although Jenn is focusing her demo on a disciplinary referral example you will find tons of other ways to use Google Forms as a teacher in the Livebinder

35:05 - Peggy George
haha Bart Simpson!!

35:21 - Peggy George
I imagine he might have quite a few referrals :-)

35:42 - stidmama
I really like this. Far better than paper slips that can get lost!

35:53 - @bcdtech Maureen
Can you make it so that you can have more than one reason for referral, but that would be checkbox...hmm

36:08 - Peggy George
absolutely @stidmama!! and it so efficient with immediate access

38:35 - Peggy George
wow! automatically emails the response with formRanger!

38:47 - Peggy George
I mean formMule :-)

39:25 - Peggy George
that is soooo helpful for teachers to know what action the admin took

40:32 - Peggy George
her slides show how to set up and build the email template

41:56 - Peggy George
would you use that email form to send responses to parents?

43:37 - Peggy George (FormMule email merge utility for Google sheets)

43:50 - Peggy George (formRanger add-on-formRanger allows you to populate multiple choice, list, checkbox, and grid options from columns in any Sheet or Doctopus roster.)

44:00 - Peggy George (Use Add-ons and Apps Script Google Help)

44:23 - Peggy George

44:53 - @bcdtech Maureen
So you (or some IT type person) makes the forms and then the teachers and admin just use them...or do they do their own set ups?

45:11 - Peggy George
great question Maureen!

45:45 - @bcdtech Maureen
I love the way Jenn simplifies work flows

46:46 - Peggy George
yes! and once it's created it's so easy to use by teachers and admins!

47:55 - Bella
thanks Jenn for sharing. Have to leave now

48:10 - Peggy George
Can you do all of this if you're not a GAFE school (Google Apps for Education)? As long as all teachers and admins are using Google and have Google accounts?

48:51 - Maria b 1
I don't believe so.

48:51 - Peggy George
Lorie is saving all of our questions to ask Jenn on the mic :-)

50:46 - Peggy George
really easy to use once it's created :-)

51:13 - @bcdtech Maureen
Yah but - what would you fill 3 ring binders with?

51:22 - Peggy George
hahaha Maureen!

52:22 - Peggy George
great tip!

52:23 - Joan Kane
So many ways to use this information! I'll be working on my beginning of year student information and interests forms today. Thanks!

52:53 - Peggy George
awesome Joan!!

53:35 - Peggy George
I'll bet parents would really appreciate such timely feedback!! and it's all documented :-)

53:54 - Peggy George
they can't say they didn't know :-)

54:02 - Joan Kane
Cna Jenn give a quick explanation on how she uses the FormLimited and Autocrat add-ons?

54:17 - Susie @shighley
Even just starting small can help convince people. Use a form for something simple and show results.

54:26 - Peggy George
I would love that too Joan!!!

55:29 - @bcdtech Maureen
Question re student privacy- can we use Google Forms for SPED info?

56:36 - Peggy George
wow! that's really handy to be able to limit the number of signups! That would be great for parents volunteering to bring things for class parties :-)

57:10 - @bcdtech Maureen
@Peggy- we've used it for pot lucks- only so many desserts, etc...

57:16 - Peggy George

57:22 - Peggy George
great idea Maureen!

57:31 - Peggy George
that's the link for Autocrat

57:35 - Susie @shighley
I used autocrat for the certificates for edcampIndy

57:58 - Peggy George
Autocrat instructions:

58:18 - Joan Kane
Will Autocrate email the mail merge?

58:27 - Peggy George

58:52 - Joan Kane
Perfect; already answered.

58:56 - Peggy George

58:57 - Susie @shighley
I learned how to use it from a video from Wes Fryer!

59:17 - Peggy George
Susie do you have that link? Would love to add it to the Livebinder :-)

59:24 - Peggy George
Fantastic presentation Jenn!!!!

59:34 - Joan Kane
Loved, loved, loved this presentation, Jenn! One of the best Classroom 2.0 webinars I've attended! (...and we all know that a pretty high bar...)

59:44 - @bcdtech Maureen
Thanks Jenn! Look forward to learning more from you at the next conference!

59:49 - Jenn Judkins
That is so sweet Joan!

1:00:20 - Sharon Gullett
Wow! Love the information you presented. You extended my use of Forms exponentially. :)

1:00:40 - @plnaugle (Paula)

Thank you for reminding me how flexible and useful google forms can be! :-) Time for me to think about how to extend my existing use to this year's "crop" of kiddos!

Patti Ruffing does an awesome job of managing all of the PD certificates! She uses autocrat :-)
