Plickers is a fantastic assessment app that I have used many times to poll my students, for exit cards or simple surveys, or even as a MUCH more fun (and quick) way to deliver (and mark) quizzes! Take a look at this brief video and keep scrolling for a more in-depth look at how I use it in my own classes.
TeacherKit is a fantastic all-in-one administrative and organizational app for classroom teachers. With very intuitive and fluid controls any teacher can easily create, maintain and share all of their classroom details using one paperless method!
Here is another game that I was shown by Mr. P. I am going to call it Wall Ball for obvious reasons. Students will be divided into teams just like dodgeball, but instead of trying to hit other students the goal of the game is to hit the wall before the ball bounces or is stopped by another student. This game is A LOT of fun, and gets VERY competitive!
Back in December we posted about Wipebook 3, a Canadian Kickstarter project. I had been following these guys since day one and couldn’t resist jumping in on the Wipebook 3… it was my first Kickstarter Project! After a bit of a delay, but amazing support and communication, I got my Wipebook 3 and have LOVED using it. (We will be posting a review very soon!)
WELCOME BACK! The first week of school is over, and we’ve settled in… so it is time to get back to work on blog posts. I have a few posts coming this week, with some great DPA games and a few cool tools for any teacher.
Make sure to follow us on twitter and facebook as I do A LOT of retweeting from some pretty awesome sources.
If you’re new to the blog here are some MUST HAVES to tide you over until things get going again this year.
If you have any ideas for future topics just let me know!
This is only a quick look at this innovative service, feel free to take your time with it on your own!
Poll Everywhere is a great tool that I have used in the past to get students (and fellow teachers) engaged in the lesson or presentation at hand. You can easily set up a multiple choice poll and get results as I did above.
