Wellbeing check-ins with Google Forms


It can be challenging to make time for regular check-ins and for teachers to spot whether one of their students needs to talk something through or share something to celebrate.

Opening up a Google Form, with the addition of voice, breaks down some of these barriers and has become a real win for many educators and learners the world over.


Join me to see how we can quickly add voice notes to a Google Form designed to deepen connection with my students.

Mote Audio Timelines

Creating Multimedia Timelines in Slides & Sheets

Timelines and timelines creation are a staple in many history and social studies classrooms. Traditionally completed on massive sheets of paper, they were devoid of any multimedia that would allow students to explain the significance, connections, and impact of events. Not to worry, Mote in both Google Sheets and Slides allows educators and students to create Mote Audio Timelines using two helpful templates created by the Mote team.

Audio Rubrics with Mote

Adding audio to rubrics for improved feedback

Rubrics allow educators to provide structured, clear feedback to students and allow students to know and understand the criteria on which their work is being assessed. Whether one is implementing traditional four or five point rubrics, or the single point rubric, there is a significant opportunity for educators to increase both the quantity and quality of the feedback being provided with Mote. With Mote, educators can create audio-rubrics. Rubrics that provide a space for educator comments where thoughtful and specific feedback can be provided based on the criteria outlined in the rubric.

The team at Mote has created three rubric styles in a Google Sheets template that educators can make a copy of and modify to their liking to begin integrating audio-rubrics into the classroom.

In the video walk-through below, we will explore how to use:

  • Self-grading / auto-color coding audio-rubrics
  • Traditional four point scale audio-rubrics
  • Single Point audio-rubrics
