Classroom Power Tools - Socrative

This portion of my blog will be dedicated to sharing some of my favorite digital classroom tools.  Teachers often ask me my favorites and there are just too many to list.  But talk to anyone who's asked, and they will tell you that's a dangerous question because you might have to sit and listen to me share for an hour or more! :)

Okay, so first on the list...if you haven't heard of Socrative yet, let me enlighten you.  It is a wonderful tool that will completely replace the need for a set of "clickers".  This tool has given me the ability to assess my students instantly while integrating technology in a new and exciting way.  My students love using Socrative and it is super easy.  Students do not need to login but instead just enter the "room number" given to the teacher by Socrative.  You have several options including multiple choice, short answer, and true/false questions.  You can also give a quiz, exit ticket, or play a game called Space Race with your students.  This power tool has saved me so much time and the students love responding digitally to my questions.  And the number one reason I love Socrative...IT'S FREE!!!

  3. How I wish these are also available in woodworking class! Would be handy to see biscuit joiner tutorials so students in woodworking can use at home, too.
