Socrative - Student Engagement
Socrative is a great tool to use some gamification in your student engagement and to include introverts in your classroom. You can pay for the full application or use the free version . This app allows you to make quizzes using a variety of question options. It also allows you to control the pace as a teacher or let it be student controlled. You can make a game of it and everyone can see how they do in a race but the contestants are nameless so no one knows who answers incorrectly. Feedback can also be attached to each question. I am using it for the first time in my positioning class this week as a review and a change of pace from the regular classroom activities. Wish me luck!
