It has been about 3.5 years since I was active blogging but I hope to be fairly consistent moving forward. My latest post is advice on making smart technology choices in the classroom.

Another teacher at my school would like to use Google Classroom in her math class. Does anyone know of a program that she could use to create quizzes and test that can be graded and analyzed? 

I use google forms and flubaroo but she is teaching place value and there is no way to underline the number that she wants her students to identify in a google form.

Thoughts?

I love Google forms to evaluate quick quizzes and formative assessments in math.  GMath has some of the math characters we need, but not all of them.  I've found that I can also go to copypastecharacter.com to find text characters for most math symbols.

Also, I want to try infuse, which is similar to Socrative.

+Google for Education​ Google classroom is great....but it seems like it could use some obvious upgrades/changes. I think a really nice feature would be the ability to access forms inside of the classroom...or similar to the new poll in Google+ alongside the announcement and assignment options.

In other words a way to get quick results from students without leaving the online classroom.

+Google Drive​ I'm a teacher and you could make my life so much easier (along with thousands of other teachers). Please add the ability to underline a word or single characters in Google Forms.

It would help trying to teach place value and a thousand and two different other "what is the meaning/part of speech/ authors tone in the underlined word".

We're waiting patiently but it seems like a simple word processing tool would be a simple addition. Thanks!

+Animoto Any chance you are adding a google sign in anytime soon? It would really encourage teachers to use animoto (teachers hate extra logins).

Gateway is a good church with good people. The church has been growing in recent years and seeing the Lord transform lives. They offer kids programs for kids and teens on Wednesday nights. The people make you feel welcome without making you blush and the music is great. Steel guitars, electric, and bass , baby grand piano. All live all the time!
