Plickers – Transforming Student Assessment and Data Collection

Another Quiz style, interactive polling system but with a big difference. Teacher creates the classes through the website and assigns names. 


Download the App on iphone, pad or android device


Each student is given an answer card (QR code style) which has four possible answers: A, B, C and D. 


Teacher gives out the question eg on a PowerPoint. Students choose an answer and hold up their card (in the correct rotation).


Either through web cam or scanning with the camera, each score is automatically recorded and stored in a chart. 


Looks very promising


Blubbr: Just how much did they really take in of that video?

See on Scoop.itWeb2.0 Tools for Teachers and Students

How awesome could this site be? Allows you to add in your own multiple choice questions to YouTube videos. You can put the questions at any point in the video too.

You need to create an account and have videos available to be viewed on YouTube. Create a a Triv as they call it. Put in the URL link for the video to add to the timeline. Create your multiple choice question (at least 5).

You cannot control where you add the questions to the video (boo!), instead you watch the first 40 seconds and then you are provided with a  timed multiple choice question to answer. After you get feedback on your answer, you are given another chunk of video and so on until the end.

No need for students to create an account although there is a basic leaderboard available if they do (some issues with Facebook!)

Could really benefit the flipped classroom?

Good explanatory video on YouTube

Optional video: – create your own Educational Flash games

See on Scoop.itMoodle and Mahara

It is an awesome site anyway with a number of free download FLASH games to use and a ridiculously cheap prices for amazing software suites.

What makes it even better is that with the Mahara Flash player you can upload your SWF file, select the External Media block and hey presto you have a quiz you can play that is embedded on your page!

Here is one in action (rather dull I’ll admit):

Here is a great video from the amazing Russel Tarr on students using one of the free resources (Fling the teacher)

Free Flash Resources for Teachers

Brilliant site which does exactly what it says. My particular favourites are the Countdown clock whose settings can change depending on which mp3 file you link to. Also available are templates for certain quiz types. The Millionaire quiz is a flash template with an xml file that you can edit. There is also a template for playing Weakest Link and a PowerPoint for other quizzes.
