Teaching Google Forms

I began teaching seventh graders how to program Google Docs forms to give quizzes.  There’s a lot of anxiety and concern from the kids about how to make it work.  It’s clear that this is going to require more class days than I originally anticipated.  But the results are going to be so cool, it’s hard not to get excited about it.

I mentioned it to one of my colleagues, that I was teaching this, though.  She got it immediately.

“They’ll be able to write quizzes for themselves to review material. They’ll be able to lead other students as technically-savvy and technically literate students! They’ll understand the basics of programming!”

I don’t expect to get much push-back from students about this.  I wonder what parents will say.
