My exposure to Google Docs has been somewhat limited. I've had documents shared, but I had not created a document until working on Tool 4. I decided to create a survey we could use with parents and students who come in for a tour, something our team had already discussed. I was surprised at how easy it was to work with the program, and was able to easily create survey. One difficulty I had was that when I shared the survey with my team, what opened was the spreadsheet showing the results of the survey, not the form itself. I then sent the survey to them for them to see, and then also sent directions on how to get to the form from the spreadsheet. That part seemed a bit cumbersome.
I also created a fun survey to share with my 2 co-workers who are also completing 11 Tools. I'm looking forward to getting the results of their surveys!
I am very interested in using the Google Form with students. Each year we conduct a senior survey, that has traditionally been on paper. I will make it a goal to try to complete the survey electronically this year. Additionally, I think using a blog might be a good way to get information to students about scholarships, events, and deadlines. I would also like to spend more time with Picasa to see how this might be helpful in working with pictures I've taken at Westchester.
