The last couple of years I’ve been fortunate that I don’t have “wanderers” who leave my classroom for the bathroom and never return. That’s largely due to the fact that my classes are electives that kids choose to attend. So I didn’t have to keep records of when kids signed-out and signed-in from trips to the bathroom or other places in the school.
This year, for contact-tracing purposes, I have to keep detailed records of when students leave my classroom. Rather than keeping a paper sign-out/ sign-in sheet, I’m using a Google Form that I have posted as a material in Google Classroom.
In this video I demonstrate how I created a sign-out/sign-in sheet in Google Forms, how I post it in Google Classroom, and how students utilize it. In the video I also provide a possible modification of the form.
If you work in a school that uses Office 365, you can use Microsoft Forms as a digital sign-out/ sign-in sheet. How to create that form and how students fill it out is demonstrated in this video.
