How to Link Google Forms to QR Codes

December 28, 2014

I’ve shared some of the reasons that I love Google Forms, including how they can be used to collect assessment data.  Google Forms can also be used for students to turn in information.  They might fill out a Google Form to submit a book recommendation, request extra help, or to complete an interest survey.
