Using Google Forms in the classroom

Many of us in East Lothian now have access to Google Apps through eduBuzz. This is such a powerful tool and people are thinking of more and more uses for it in education all the time.

Tom Barrett is harnessing the power of the crowd and the cloud to put together lots of examples of how Google Forms are being used in classrooms. This is changing all the time as people add to it, but at the time of posting this was up to 57!

Tom’s got lots more of these in his blog, click here to view them.

Inanimate Alice


Set in the early years of the 21st century, Inanimate Alice tells the story of Alice and her imaginary digital friend Brad.

In episode one, Alice is living with her parents in a remote region of Northern China. Over the course of the remaining episodes, each a self-contained adventure, we see her develop into a talented animator and designer with the biggest games company in the world.

Through text, sound, images, music and games, the story of Alice becomes increasingly interactive and game-like, reflecting Alice’s own developing skills as a game designer and animator.
