The Answer Pad | The Graphically-Based Student Response and Assessment System | @GregEsteves | Scoop.it

The Answer Pad is a student response system, so of course we have the typical select response question types that can be pushed out to the students. M/C, T/F, Yes/No, Fill in are a given. What makes us unique is the graphical nature of the tool, the templated backgrounds that come with The Answer Pad and the built in digital portfolio.

Dean Mantz's curator insight, May 20, 2014 9:20 AM

I appreciate this share from Nik Peachey via his Tools for Learners page on Scoop.it.  Nik is one educator I would highly recommend folks follow on Scoop.it.  I truly appreciate his philosophical and pedagogical posts. 

 

As Nik points out in his summary, the feature that allows The Answer Pad to stand out from resources like Socrative and Infinite Learning is the graphing tool.  I see this feature being big in the math, science, and CAD classrooms.

The key finding is that only 30% of the teachers surveyed felt their job was to help prepare students for future jobs. Students learn what is important now. They aspire to things, but those dreams are fluid and skills, dispositions, attitudes, etc. become essential.
