Learn It In 5 - Socrative

Get quick student response to learning with Socrative

Matthew Wickman's insight:

To be effective, teachers need to constantly evaluate learning, so they can adjust lessons and activities, in order to obtain mastery. The online quick response site, Socrative, makes instant feedback very easy.

This free application is remarkably easy to use and includes an "exit ticket" that is pre-populated with questions, so teachers can find out what students have learned; Socrative even generates a report so the teacher can see all students' responses. Best of all, students can access Socrative from any device with an Internet connection.

This video demonstrates how to use the quick response tool, Socrative.

Moving at the Speed of Creativity - Student-Created Sequoyah Book Reports, AudioBoo, iPads and QR Codes

Moving at the Speed of Creativity - Student-Created Sequoyah Book Reports, AudioBoo, iPads and QR Codes | Instructional and Library Technology | Scoop.it

Fourth and fifth grade students at Independence Elementary School in Yukon Public Schools are sharing their learning as well as excitement for library books this year in a unique, highly digital way that is not only fun, but also meets Oklahoma’s new Common Core State Standards for literacy. Students are recording short, oral book reviews and posting them online using the free iPad app and webservice AudioBoo. Then students are using QR codes in the library to access and listen to each other’s book reports. In this short video IES librarian, Lindsey Clinton, explains how the project works. In addition, some IES students demonstrate the process of using AudioBoo (free) to record and publish audio book reports.
