Do you need to capture student votes in your classroom or school? One easy method is to combine Google forms and one of our favorite URL shorteners, QR.net. First, create a form using your WCS Google account. Next, shorten the URL and create a QR code using QR.net. Share the QR code in your classroom or assembly for students to scan and vote. You can edit and reuse the Google form over and again. This will let you reuse the same QR code for voting. A new feature in Google will allow you to create a new spreadsheet for the recycled form. This allows you to retain and archive your earlier voting. Refer to our step-by-step directions. Enjoy!

If you’ve ever asked students to access something on the Internet without the benefit of a clickable link, you have probably noticed that the link address can be quite long! An easy way to shorten a URL is to use a URL shortener like QR.net. With QR.net, you can even customize the address and choose something your students will easily remember. You can also copy and post a QR code for students to scan to access the link you want to share.

Check out our newest addition to the Classroom Spotlight Page! See how students in Mr. Shapiro’s World History class at Ravenwood used Padlet to collaborate on the Causes of World War I.
In today’s Tech Tip Tuesday, we are highlighting a great tool that engages students and is great for collaboration and creativity. Padlet is a virtual wall that allows contributors to post images, videos or documents. What’s wonderful about Padlet is it is accessible from any device, as long as you have access to the internet. Students do not need an account to use Padlet.
What are ways you could use a Padlet in your classroom?
- Brainstorming Document
- Guide for a lesson/WebQuest
- As a place for students to showcase their work
- Gather Feedback
- Mindmap or Storyboard
