3 Tech Tools for Immediate Feedback

"Do you get it?"

"Does that make sense?" 

"Do you understand?"

Since I can't actually get inside my students heads, I find myself constantly asking myself and asking my students these questions. I want to ensure they understand the concept and be able to work in small groups with the students that need additional assistance. When technology was introduced into my classroom, I knew there had to be a better way.

I discovered these three tools and my classroom has never been the same!
  1. Socrative
    Socrative is a great option for getting student feedback right away. Teachers can create quizzes, polls, or activities and launch them from the teacher version. Students join the "Room" and are able to answer the questions. My favorite things about Socrative are the wide variety of question types (MC, FR, TF, etc) and the "See How We Did" button. The button allows you to not only see how many got it right and how many got it wrong, but also how many chose each answer. It is so helpful for identifying those pesky misconceptions.
  2. Peardeck
    As the teacher, I am able to create questions (or import slides). Once I launch my presentation on my computer (attached to my projector), students are able to join in and answer the question I cue up. As they answer, I can see exactly what they are writing, doing, or choosing in their browser. I can then use my tablet in Dashboard mode to select any answers I want to show to the class. I make it a competition for my favorite answer! Once I've shown my favorite, I use my tablet to choose the next question and am able to control what is seen on the projector. There is Google integration here as well, which is pretty much my favorite thing.
  3. Kahoot
    Kahoot is always a winner with my high school students. They love the music, competitive nature, and fun colors. I love that they are reinforcing concepts and staying engaged. You create a multiple choice quiz on the Kahoot site. When you launch the quiz (while projecting it), students log in with a code and are able to join in. They will see four colored squares (each with a shape to help our color blind students) on their screens. On the projector, they will see the question and answers which are each assigned a corresponding color and shape. The questions are timed and play fun music while you are waiting for responses. After each question, it indicates who your front runner is. 
On October 7 I will be presenting on these tools and more at the Colonial Tech Conference! Hope to see you there!

  4. Thanks for your blog post and discussing your own results together with us. Very well completed! I think a lot of people find it hard to understand paying attention to many controversial things associated with this topic, and your own results speak for themselves. I think several additional takeaways are the significance of following each of the ideas you presented above and being willing to be ultra unique about which one could really work for you best. Nice job

  5. It is because of that, it does not guarantee the source of water after filtration, safe for everyone's health. So periodically replacing the filter element is something you need to keep in mind. Filtering is an important part of the quality of the water supply. During operation, the filter core is responsible for retaining the impurities, residues, and algae, so that these impurities and harmful bacteria after a period of time can seal the filter, causing the phenomenon. reverse osmosis.
