18 ways to use Google forms and sheets in #Physed (including examples)

Google Apps For Education are an amazing suite of apps specifically catered for schools and students. Part of this suite are google forms, which allow a very quick and organised way to collect any sort of data which can be analysed and sorted within a spreadsheet. basically, once students have entered the data via the forms, the information is merged into a spreadsheet and saved into your google drive. Forms are extremely easy to share via the magic ‘share’ button, which you can email to students or link to a QR code! Get organised and start using forms in PE.organisation (1)
