Thanks to Mrs. Hoff for sharing this super awesome tool that is high touch and high tech. Plickers uses cards that you print from their website and then assign to a student to hold up during question/ response. Using your smart phone, you simply add questions and answers then scan your classroom using the camera on the app, and it captures the students A,B,C, or D responses for you. When you log in to the website, you can view your classes and their responses - color coded - red (incorrect) and green (correct). I find this is easy to use when incorporating a PowerPoint or simply a paper quiz by groups to respond to as a formative assessment tool. Students enjoy it once they realize the direction they point the card determines their answer submitted to me. Have fun plicking!
I work with teachers and students as an education technology specialist for middle school and serve as the TXDLA K-12 Board Member. My goal is to share innovative and useful information for other educators, as well as catalog my personal finds along the way!
