Create Interactive Worksheets with Google Docs #EdTech


It is great when teachers can find PDF documents that students can fill out. However, on Chromebooks these are quite a challenge. Some have the ability to use apps like Kami.

Annotating and Filling out PDFs on Chromebooks

Kami allows students and teachers to annotate over PDFs within a web browser. This is one solution for getting students to fill out worksheets on Chromebooks. However, it is one that will cost money if you want all of your students to be able to use it.

However, a potentially better solution would be to create your own Fillable Worksheet in Google.

You can use Google Docs or Google Sheets for this method. Check out my Google Docs example below.

Sample Fillable Worksheet (Blank)


The key to creating fillable worksheets on Google Docs is to create every question into a table. Always have your question and answer blanks separated so students will type you you intend them to answer. I also highlight these areas so students do not overlook questions.

You can change the color of the borders in your tables to hide the lines and create blanks. This will help direct students on how to fill out the worksheet.

I created this worksheet based on a fillable PDF worksheet. Click below for the original.

Re: Inside the School Where Every Student Gets Their Own Teacher

https://www.edsurge.com/news/2019-09-16-inside-the-school-where-every-student-gets-their-own-teacher Olivia is currently enrolled part-time in one of the most unique high school models in the country. Where many schools struggle with ever-expanding student-teacher ratios, Futures Academy, a California network of private schools serving middle- and high schoolers, follows a distinctly personalized model: Every class in every subject has one teacher and only one student. The model takes an eyebrow-raising twist on one-to-one instruction, which in many education circles has come to refer to one computer for every student. This sounds like a discussion I have had many times with other educators when talking about school models and how to improve schools. "What if every student had their own teacher?" It is an intriguing idea that, on the surface, sounds like the ideal learning environment. However, most times I have discussed this, the conversation usually ends up saying t
