Google Tip of the Day: Using Google Forms for Interest-based Activities

If you haven't used Google Forms yet you should.  It makes life easier in the classroom for multiple reasons.  One way that it can be used is to provide students choice in their learning.  Since it's CS Week and we are asking you to join in efforts for #hourofcode this might be a great way to share the information with students.

Here are some steps on how you can create a Google form and have your students pick which coding project they want to do based on their interest.

  1. Navigate to Google Drive.
  2. Click New>More>Google Forms.
  3. Name your form.  (ex. Choose Your Coding Project)
  4. Type a multiple choose question by clicking the plus sign.
  5. Then click the section icon.

  6. Add your sections and content for that section (ex. Star Wars, Minecraft, Frozen)

  7. Return to your first question and click the 3 dots icon in the bottom right corner.
  8. Select Go to section based on answer.
  9. Select the section you want students to visit based on their answers.

Here is the example form I created.  Choose Your Coding Project
