How to be “Formnomenal” with Google Forms

Intended Audience: Any educator or staff member interested in learning more about Google Forms

In this session I will show you how I have used Google Forms and Google Sheets to change the way in which I work as a connected Physical Educator.  How I have quizzes that automatically grade themselves and email the grade back to the student, how I collect essential information from students and parents and amend documents for liability purposes, how I have automatic emails sent out to parents or students depending on the answers in which they give and much more.  By working with the technology, it allows me to use my time more effectively.
