Week 2 Socrative

Hi My Cool Tool  is called Socrative.

http://www.socrative.com/

Socrative is a program that teachers can use to have online quizzes and interactive discussions. There is a quiz tagging feature to help students navigate the site better.The feature that I like is that there is question randomization and answer randomization. For me as an Art teacher I can put images/picture in the question area. Socrative has a team/group work feature that can make these quizzes competitive which for me in a all boys school is a great way to get my students engaged.

Once the quizzes are finished there is a report function that is very important because it gives the teacher immediate feedback about content that may or may not need to be reviewed.

  1. Wow this Socrative assessment platform looks very cool. Data driven assessment and academic changes is something I think a lot of instructors have a hard time with. Our situation is moving towards blended learning and I think that this would be a great platform to use as sort of a formal assessment and retake it into the classroom. I love how this application shows glass of real-time data. I’ve only had a few classes in which we’ve used real time day like this but they’ve all have been very engaging. The real-time date is a great way to export discussion in the classroom. And I find that the learners are always anxious to see what their fellow classmates think. The competitiveness drives the students to do well
