How I Use It
Plickers is easy! All you have to do is create a teacher account and install the app on your smartphone or tablet. Then print off (or purchase) the student cards. Create your class in the teacher set-up so each card is registered to a student. Now just create quizzes/formative assessments and get started! Using your smartphone or tablet's camera (and Plickers installed app) you will be getting feedback from your students in seconds. This is a MUST HAVE if you are in a classroom without many devices. It will turn your students' cards (depending on their rotation) into digital responses that are self graded. No more lugging all those papers home and grading them. Plickers does that all for you and it is easy for the teacher and fun for the students!
My Take
I love Plickers. It is easy to use from both the teacher and student side. It helps teachers get very quick feedback from what students are getting and where they are. It is perfect for quick formative assessments or "ticket out the door" type data. There are tons of online formative assessment tools out there, but not every classroom has access to devices. If you don't have enough devices, Plickers is the perfect solution.
