For Tool #6, I explored the Forms portion of Google Docs a bit more and created the following questionnaire I would use with a video about Slope-Intercept form I assign my students to watch.
I found the "Theme" button which allows me to change the format and background of the questionnaire. I like that feature. I really want to start some "Backwards Teaching" and I think this Forms tool could be a great addition to the pre-learning/pre-teaching kids experience at home through video links. I even figured out how to adjust the size of the poll found in the HTML embedding code to shrink it a bit!
I also like this idea of creating a classroom Blog through Blogger. I am just still trying to wrap my head around how I would use it. I honestly don't want to manage a website and a blog. I am curious if other teachers have found a way to combine the two and how they do it.
I was introduced to Poll Everywhere last school year and again at the beginning of the year; both by Alan November. I think the site is very cool but has the distinct drawback of every kid needing to have a phone which has texting capabilities.
In reality, I think Poll Everywhere is similar to what ActivExpressions can do and we know all kids can access those tools.
