How I Use It
When delivering instruction to the class, or working in a blended learning rotational format, I have students open Geddit in a window in their browser. They do a check-in when they start, and then they check in and they feel the need, or I ask them to check in as we proceed through the lesson. At the end of the class, I have students answer a few short questions as an exit slip, and I use that data to inform my grouping and instructional decisions for the next day.
I find that students do not want you interrupting their learning with questions in the middle of the lesson. They prefer the questions to come at the end.
In a blended learning rotational format, it can be difficult for the teacher to keep in touch with what is going on in the other rotations, and it can be difficult for students to become independent and progress through a lesson without immediate contact with their teacher. Geddit allows teachers and students to be connected in a way that allows teachers to scaffold that support and still be connected with students learning. I really think that Geddit does a great job of providing that support in one package that can be used in one way... it can be used for exit slip, it can be used for formative assessment, and it can be used for teacher/student communication.
