How I Use It
I use plickers in my classroom to take quick assessments of student learning. Students hold cards with their answer, the teacher will scan the room with their phone. Using the app on the phone will the teacher will record responses. The app will collate the assignment and the instructor to explain what makes the question or wrong. Students have to hold cards up that match the answer they want. The teacher will scan answers with a phone/tablet which records each response. Then the teacher will know how all students are understanding.
My Take
Plickers is a great way to do formative assessment, pre-post assessment, or check to see how your students are feeling about a particular unit. It is easy to use and setup in the classroom. Only the teacher needs a mobile device once cards are printed. Students only have to hold up their signs to have their answers recorded. Very usefull app.
