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.
