It’s safe to say that creating online worksheets are not the ideal educational way to use tech during “normal” times but, as we have all learned during the past fifteen months, many of us have found them very useful in remote and concurrent teaching.
And, I suspect, many of us might be continuing to use them at times in the future, mainly as homework.
Here are a few tools for creating them (and please let me know which ones I’m missing):
Of course, there are a zillion tutorials out there for turning Google Slides into interactive worksheets. Just search the topic and you’ll find a ton.
Wizer is the “granddaddy” of making them.
Live Worksheets is probably the most popular site internationally for them out there.
FoBizz Tools has a lot of….tools for teachers. I think their “Create a Worksheet” feature is particularly useful. It’s a German site and, though much of it is in English, their videos explaining how to use it are in German.
Some readers pointed out to me that I omitted Kami:

I should have included it here, though I’m not a big fan because it requires each student to add it as an extension and that’s just one more thing to guide students to do….

Again, let me know what sites I’m overlooking….
