When you send or share a form, recipients' responses will automatically be collected in that spreadsheet. Participants will: 1. Explore the features of Google Forms; 2. Discover a variety of uses for Google Forms; and 3. Create a basic Google Form. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session from March 2018, opens in Adobe Connect. Persuasive writing is a critical skill that can seem daunting to elementary and middle school students. Now more than ever readers and writers must be able to distinguish between fact and opinion and clearly identify supporting evidence. Understanding the terms fact, opinion, and evidence is key to digital literacy. Using those elements appropriately will help students to construct (and deconstruct) an argument. Join us in the workshop to look at three tech tools that support authentic persuasive writing. Participants will: 1. Understand how fact and opinions together form an argument; 2. Compare/Contrast three online tools for persuasive writing; and 3. Explore three online tools for persuasive writing. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.
