Row Call - Google Sheets Add-on for Sorting Responses

Row Call is a great Google Sheets add-on that creates a separate sheet based on Google Form responses. 



Instructional Purpose
Use one Google Form to collect students work, such as an Assignment Dropbox Template, and then have Row Call sort the responses instantaneous by submitter. While you can sort the main sheet by name in order to review responses, I like that this keeps it clean and organized by putting it on individual sheets.

Creating Podcasts with Vocaroo

Vocaroo is a simple to use audio recording tool that students can use to create simple podcasts. Once the recording is done students can share the podcast via a link, embed code, share on social media, download or via QR code. 



Here are some instructional uses for Vocaroo:

  • students can record a summary of a book, create QR code and place around room or near library shelves
  • students can record themselves explaining a concept
  • students can read a paper they wrote
  • students can interview another person for a story
  • students can record a song/rap they wrote about a concept
There are plenty more examples, but this is just a few to get teachers and students started. Happy recording!
