Create Student Reports From Your Class Tracker | MrAdamPE

Throughout my teaching career, I have always enjoyed looking for ways that technology can help me to work smarter, not harder. While I was at college I studied AS ICT and I do believe this gave me the basic skills I needed when it came to designing department systems. I have made numerous ‘fancy’ tracking sheets that included long ‘IF’ statements that helped to calculate students grade at the end of the year (see picture below). I have used conditional formatting to change individual cells colour depending on the condition and create tables and graphs to show to admin.

Using GDrawings in #Physed & #Health | MrAdamPE


So most recently I have been playing around with Google Drawings and looking at possible ways you could implement them into your PE and Health lessons. One way that I thought of, was to make student diagrams that needed to be label become a drag and drop task. You could create the template, share the template with your students, they then share back the completed homework when they have finished for you to check. Below are some examples:

You can get your own example by clicking the links below:

Voice Typing In Google Docs | MrAdamPE

Have you ever thought it would be so much easier if you could just tell the computer what you wanted to type? A few years ago I would use programs like Dragon Dictation to help speed up the typing process. Though it was accurate you would have to train the computer to help you to type. Not anymore…..Why not try Google Docs to do the same thing for FREE!!

Open a Google Doc, Click ‘Tools’ the ‘Voice Typing’.

Press the microphone and away you go.

Some basic commands:
Exclamation point
Question mark
New line
New paragraph

Think about the possible uses and how it…

Password Protect Your Google Forms | MrAdamPE

When creating a Google form there are times that you would like to share it outside of your domain but still, want to have the opportunity for only a select audience to be able to view it.

One way to achieve this is putting a password on the form and sharing the password with the people you want to complete the form.

I would recommend putting this on the first page and make it a required question.


Click the three dots next to the required switch, then response validation. This will then give you a number of options.

Select ‘Text’, then ‘Contains’, write your password…

Last year, I attended the one that was organised by @Cleathert01 in Blackburn and it was a great expercience, not only to present, but to listen to all the great things that were happening in peoples classrooms in the area.

Well a slight difference to the music video by A Tribe Called Quest, but have you ever wanted to give your device to your children or students, but worry that they may go on to other apps/emails/messages/pictures on your device?
