Wouldn’t it be fantastic if all of our students had their own electronic device? If these devices aren’t available in your school then Plickers is definitely for you! What are Plickers? Plickers stands for “paper clickers.” They are 40 pre-made cards that let teachers collect real-time formative assessment data without the need for student devices. Students are given or assigned a card to hold up to answer questions given by the teacher to check for understanding. All the teacher has to do is scan the room with any IOS or Android device. Results are given instantly as to which students understand and which do not. The results can be shown for each individual student or you can have it show the overall percentage for the class. The pre-made cards can be found and printed off for free at http//:plickers.com or you can purchase a laminated set on Amazon for $20!
