Survey Sweeps! The Power of GoogleForms and your PLN

Recently, I discovered the wonderfully useful service that is GoogleForms. As a tech-enthusiast and long time Google user, I’m still not sure how I missed this in the past. Pursuing my first graduate degree means I need to take in large quantities of datum (I still think hard about the plurality of data every time I type it).

Over the past year or so, I have found absolutely incredible connections through my PLN on Twitter and Plurk. Usually I’m able to ask questions and get a few small conversations going, but mostly I end up joining larger conversations in the macroverse of social media. With GoogleForms, I have found a useful and simple way to ask pointed questions relevant to my interests in education.

Below, I’m posting links to several of my simple surveys about educational trends. Most only took a few minutes to write and post online. I was amazed at how quickly the responses piled up. A thank you in advance to anyone who fills out these surveys.

Diversity Survey

There are lots of custom form themes

In a few weeks, I’ll post all the graphica, data, and selected input from the surveys (it’s all anonymous, so don’t worry about your name showing up, I have no way of knowing that when you take the survey).
