The recent conversation that Jodi raised about using Facebook in the classr00m got me thinking about how many other Alaska teachers use Facebook as a way to deliver content or to inform parents about class activities. So I created a survey to find out if educators are using facebook with students or with parents.
I’ve created surveys with google forms before and find it a perfect tool for somethings and a frustrating activity for other tasks. I particularly dislike not being able to reorder or fix typos in the spreadsheet once the form is created. I’d rather be able to create on the fly with the ability to change my mind as to the order of survey questions or wording and I wish the accompanying spreadsheet would follow my changes. It would be great if you could create a new spreadsheet once you have the form completed. I used a logic question for the first time and it was a challenge to figure out the best way to have people navigate through the pages. I wish there was an automatic page for the submit button so you could direct next page navigation to that ending submit page without having to create one on your own which is rather clunky. I ended up having an “aha” moment and changed some of the pages around to fix that problem. I originally had all of the “All User” questions up front but I had to split them up and create another page so that those who “Don’t use Facebook with students/parents” could get to the last page correctly.
I started out creating this form in the UA google docs but I could not get to the themes area with out getting error messages. So I shared it out to my consumer account, changed the theme and shared it back with my UA account. In my UA app I couldn’t get it to work with chrome or with firefox. I have a help ticket started.
Anyway, here it is, I also added you as viewers so you can see how I set up the form.
And here are the results in summary format: http://goo.gl/q06pn
Please check for logic and typos!
