I stumbled across a pretty cool add-on to Google Forms this morning called “Check it Out.” When I was in the classroom, managing technology sign ins/outs was a complete nightmare. If I had a nickel for every time I heard a teacher confess to me they HATED using technology simply because of the logistics and management of the device itself… I probably wouldn’t need to work! Who wants to waste valuable class time? I am huge proponent of all things Google Forms and used it consistently for all information collection in my classroom. An add-on specifically dedicated to the process of check in/outs was a definate winner.
Check out this quick demo I made to minimize the time spent on checking devices in/out but still meeting the requirements for logging student use of technology. Let me know what you think of Check it Out in the comments below!
