on Google + with your GTAWA Circle and
 Twitter your masterpiece once you're done!   


Make a Self-Grading Quiz with Flubaroo or a Script!

Check out www.flubaroo.com and follow the instructions 
to either:

1) Play with a sample quiz and see how it works
2.) Ready to make your own? Follow these instructions
 step-by-step to create a Form, create an answer key, insert
Flubaroo script, and you're golden!



Make a Gadget: 

Take Spreadsheet data (either your own or one of the examples) and 
Insert>Gadget to display your info a delightfully geeky way.

Get started by checking out an actual spreadsheet of each gadget, and change it 
to make it your own!

Super Nerd Alert: "Publish Chart" and insert it into a Google Site!
 It updates as you update it.

Motion chart, word cloud, tree map, or just mess with charts.



Make a Script!

Play with an existing Script: Use the Example Script, spreadsheet, and
and tutorial and practice making a very simple script. Magic!

Edit a Script template: Using MCQ Scripts, create a form or survey
that e-mails back people who submit it (great for sending quiz scores,
pre-workshop surveys, classroom observations, and more!)

Or check out the Gallery and give one a test drive!
