Socrative, which runs on tablets, smartphones, and laptops, is an interesting app because it allows me to pose a question and have students respond in real time to my inquiry. I can assess on the fly and best of all, students can use their portable media to provide me with near instant feedback.
As well as this I can create quizzes which students can take in the form of a quiz or a game. Space Race game is really engaging and a lot of fun, students aren’t even aware they are doing a quiz.
There are two versions of Socrative—a student version and a teacher version. Upon logging in, students enter a room number. The teacher can then see how many students are in the room posing questions to the students or start a quiz or game.
For further information and detailed instructions on how to use Socrative open up my webinar that I recently conducted with MLTAV.
