Using Socrative as a Formative Assessment

If your kids like Kahoot, they will also like Socrative. I plan to try it this fall.

Like Kahoot, Socrative is way to get questions to students who can answer with their smart devices. You can develop open ended questions, multiple choice questions,  true false questions, or short answer questions.

Answers come immediately and you can project them because student names are not attached. Students can even "vote" on their favorite responses. 

There are lots of applications across disciplines. I want to try it in my AP World History classes with thesis writing. After we review how to write a thesis, I could give them a prompt and ask them to respond on Socrative.  I could then project and review the responses and have students then "vote" on their favorite.

Here's how an English teacher uses Socative.

By going here, I can take any Ted Talk, or for that matter, any video on Youtube and create a lesson with multiple choice and short answer questions to go with it.  When that is done you will be given a unique url which you can then give to your...

I am teaching a technology integration course right now for teachers (and will be again in the spring if you work in Fairfax County, VA).  One of my students, George Coe, found this new site which is similar to  Both all...
