Using Google Forms to Encourage Collaboration

#NipRockArt students helped to design their art history project today by responding to this tweet:

We had discussed our assignment a little bit yesterday, and the class knew that they had to choose an art period or artist between the Renaissance & Modern period.  Today, I taught them how to access the link via Twitter, or through Google (for non-Twitter users).  They arrived at a screen that looked like this:

The form has now been turned off, and responses are no longer being accepted.

In less than half an hour, the class had completed their responses and we were able to view the results.  I tweeted a link to the spreadsheet so that some students could use their phones to browse the responses while we chatted about the criteria that was now projected on our Smartboard:  

We talked about which criteria were helpful, and even noticed a number of repetitions — a sure sign that certain points were important.  You can look at the results here:

You may notice that the link to these results was also available from the original form.

We came up with the “Top 5” success criteria for our project, but they aren’t carved in stone.  We’ll see how our project evolves!
