Automatically update your dropdown menus in Google Sheets when users add a new item

Works great in sheets and can also be used to update dropdown menus in Google Forms if used with FormRanger.
 
Create Dynamic Dropdown Menus in Google Sheets
Choices in life are always expanding and changing. Your choices in Google Sheets drop down menus should act the same way. When a collaborator on a sheet submits an idea, wouldn’t it be amazing if that idea became an option on all the drop down menus in the Sheet, without any manual updating?

Sometimes when creating dropdown menus in Google Sheets we don’t always know what the options should be. By using the UNIQUE function, we can create dropdown menus that automatically updated based on what users are entering. That way, we can choose items based on previous entries or add a new item that will automatically update our list.

Engaging students with technology starts with letting them make choices.

To ensure that their choices are ones we can live with, ask them about their devices, apps, and Internet access. This information allows teachers to design learning that allows students to work within some of their own device routines.

About this community

The EdTech Google+ community is a place where educators, technologists, students, researchers, connoisseurs and enthusiasts can discuss the multifaceted role of technology in education. As an industry leading resource for EdTech related communications, technologies, practices, research and methodology, we hope this space is a collaborative and open resource for the world to share their stories, research and findings in educational technology. As of late, the community has sustained significant growth, and is expected to continue. For that reason, we aim to revitalize the submission process to encourage a more easily navigated and rewarding experience for users. Ultimately, your posts and submissions should help contribute to the intellectual growth of this community which represents a larger movement. We have carefully researched what makes a community succeed, what makes them thrive, and what makes them fail. We want you to see this community as a place where you can grow, converse, question and laugh about things that matter to you and ideas that will move our world forward. We've put together an Open Community Constitution (OCC) to guide you when contributing, posting, sharing and interacting with the community. This OCC is a living document meant to guide you when posting meaningful, purposeful content that contributes to the community. Expectations of a post: 1. Post must be related to role of technology and how it relates to education, classrooms, pedagogy, instruction and learning. 2. Does not solely promote a product, individual or institution with no benefit to the entire community 3. Post must have relevant introductory text related to the post, link, photo or video 4. Posts and updates should be in the best interests of education technology leadership, research both academic and commercial 5. Above all, make it fun and keep it classy. - Your EdTech Moderators Adopted: September 9, 2013

Hi! I am looking for any suggestions for software to install in a computer lab for K-5 students to use as part of an intervention class for reading and/or math. Because the students are all on various levels, it would be helpful if the software program also had various levels of difficulty.

Does any have any great software products that they use for K-5 reading or math?

Well the school that is looking for software has an unreliable internet connection. Throughout the day kids are in a computer lab using math and reading websites during their intervention time. However, on the days where the internet is extremely slow or down altogether, the principal is requesting ideas for software programs that could be installed on the desktops and used without an internet connection.
