I can't think of a time when students would interpret data in my room, at least off the top of my head. My favorite tool was the Google Form. It was user friendly and gives you data directly after the students answer the form. It's quick and easy. I'm a fan!
While I'm not sure that I would use these tools to graph a lot of mathematical data in my classroom, I could see using it in charting information such as character traits. For my own use, I can see myself using the spreadsheet and charts in looking at assessment.

In math we are always working with data, but I think it's good for them to collect it and evaluate data and use it to make informed decisions. My favorite tool is Excel or Google spreadsheets.
I enjoyed using the form maker and learning more about Google Tools. I felt like I really had time to practice using it. I feel like I know so much more now!
I would have my students interpret and represent data when we are working on graphing. I might also have them do this with science and social studies topics. I was thrilled to learn how to use Google Drive/Docs. These tools will be a great tool for use in lots of different locations.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
