As was rightly commented in the post, while the educational technology has changed and evolved, the practice thereof has not, at least progressed likewise, That should now be the focus - the learning design and gteaching practice, rather than solely the technology.

Michelle Spallone's curator insight, March 12, 2013 5:20 PM

How true I have a three year old son who is almost as good on the computer as I am.  He can pick the sites he wants from a picture and use the mouse and the pad on my lap top.  It is amazing.  I'm glad as things change so should the way we educate.

Michael Benich's curator insight, January 10, 2013 10:00 AM

One of my favorite teacher / student clickers because it's supported on any device, including the web. I control mine with the iPad and use the laptop cart, so this software works in case you're not 1-1 with iPods or iPads yet.

Adam Schulman's curator insight, May 16, 7:24 AM

This is a great tool! Socrative allows teachers to prepare interactive quizzes that can be used in real time.  Once the teacher is prepared to start the quiz, he/she can have them login to the quiz room from their tablets or smart phones.  My favorite style of running the quiz is through the space race, which shows how quickly each student can answer the questions.  The quizzes can either be multiple choice, short answer, and true or false.  The quizzes will also be able to show a clear breakdown of how the students answered the questions.
