Going beyond the basic features of Google Forms, this intermediate session takes a deeper dive into the more flexible and complex features of Google Forms. These include creating various assessment tools, adding images to increase student accessibility, providing real-time feedback, and collecting and analyzing student data. The presenter will model ways to use Google Forms when teaching English learners at any proficiency level in synchronous and asynchronous remote classes.

Please note: This course will take place in Blackboard where you will find all virtual session information, course materials, and additional resources. You cannot access the online course from the SABES website. You will receive an email with further instructions as the course date approaches.
