The ability for students to create and explore is a large part of the benefit to technology use in the classroom.  Teaching history is one of the areas in the curriculum where we often tell kids about events when we could be showing, exploring and interacti...

Announcing the docAppender Add-on for FORMS

Yep.  Add-ons for FORMS my friends!  There's now an Add-ons store right in the forms editor.

docAppender appends Google Form question responses to the bottom of selected Google Docs.

Use a Google Form to select which Doc(s) to append from a list, multiple-choice, or checkbox Form question -- pre-populated with Doc titles from a folder in Drive.

HOW IT WORKS
- Hooks up to a folder in Drive, turning one of your form questions into a Doc picker -- including the ability to use checkboxes or a "Select all" question to append a single form response to multiple docs.
- Lets you choose which question responses to append -- e.g. leaving certain questions out can be a powerful way to keep "shared" and "private" feedback on the same doc separate.
- Can include Timestamp and Username as fields to include.
- Appends form responses in one of three ways: Bulleted list, separate vertical tables, or new rows in a single horizontal table.

IDEAS FOR USAGE
- Keep a Google Doc per student where you log a running record of observations around a particular skill, like reading or numeracy.
- Use for documenting teach inter-visitations, where each teacher gets a single running document of all visits to their classroom.
- Great for applying custom, Forms-based rubric assessments on student documents.  Integrates nicely with Google - Classroom assignments -- just choose the folder that contains all student Docs and get on with grading all "turned in" docs in your own way.
- Set up a single Doc per kid via autoCrat or Doctopus and then post daily or weekly "prompts" to the end of the doc via a Google Form. 
- Great for peer review protocols on student Docs that you have editing rights on.  Give all students the link to your form and their peer assessments will all paste into the bottom of the selected student doc.

Would love an invite
+Steven Levy Does his usual awesome job with an article on Google Inbox that's full of quotes from Googlers. Apparently it's based on the same back end as Google Now. 

Hey can we just slipstream Google Now cards and G+ notificaitons into the main message view while were at it? Lets just turn this into a big control center.

I'm a big fan of Calvin & Hobbes. I read my collection from time to time, and it is pretty interesting that even 6th time around, I notice new things. The brilliance of Bill Watterson

PS: I agree with Calvin below. You?
