Clicker Technology is Alive and Well!

With the change from Turning Point to Turning Cloud I have not had many requests for use of this neat technology.  I still have many clickers that can be borrowed and  the latest version of TurningPoint Cloud will allow for anyone to pass out clickers to get anonymous responses that they can display immediately on the screen. Clickers only have to be licensed now if you want to collect the response data (quizzes, attendance, etc.).

If you would like to collect responses there is a free app called Socrative!  I posted about it last year and one of your colleagues is using it this semester.  From their website “Socrative is your classroom app for fun, effective classroom engagement. No matter where or how you teach, Socrative allows you to instantly connect with students as learning happens.

Quickly assess students with prepared activities or on-the-fly questions to get immediate insight into student understanding. Then use auto-populated results to determine the best instructional approach to most effectively drive learning.”

The webinar was called Cool Tools!

I know sometimes my job does require that I do something “cool” and this week it was attending a webinar on “Cool Tools” so I figured for the next few blogs I would share a few that were highlighted!

Clickers are always a fun way to engage students but if you forgot to pick them up from my office here is a way to still have that same experience.  Socrative is “smart student response system that empowers teachers to engage their classrooms through a series of educational exercises and games via smartphones, laptops and tablets!”
