3Promoting Collaboration and Peer Feedback in Google Docs

We'll discuss best practices and experience collaboration and peer feedback activities you can use in your classroom with Google Docs!

Exit Slips

Exit slips are one of the easiest ways to obtain information about students' current levels of understanding.

Effective lessons commonly end with an activity in which students reflect on their experience of the lesson (Source: ASCD)

  2. Daily Activity Check In (with branching)
  3. End of Class Reflection

Peer Feedback

Delivering Peer Feedback with Google Forms

by Alice Keeler

Kaizena (app)

Kaizena makes it easy for teachers to give high quality feedback on student work - simply highlight and speak to give verbal feedback, or attach reusable resources for common problems.

Autocrat (app)

AutoCrat is a multi-purpose document merge tool that allows you to take data from a spreadsheet and merge it into a document via a template. Tell autoCrat which fields to merge via <<merge tags>> and then let autoCrat mass-generate personalized documents. Optionally send the documents as email attahchments. Optionally tell autoCrat to run when new forms are submitted to created truly automated processes.

Watch this video for using AutoCrat add-on to Google Forms:

Another Approach using DocAppender (app):

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.
