How I Use It
I would use this tool all the time if we did not already have access to a paid LMS that we use throughout our district. Everything worked great within the console as well as on the mobile devices we used. Student privacy is protected so there are no issues there. The confusion barometer is a useful tool to get a feel for how well the class is understanding and processing the materials. Discussions are great to give all students a voice via technology implementation.
My Take
Free, content area agnostic, and includes the use of technology on a passive level. I enjoy Go Soapbox from what I've seen so far. This tool allows the teacher and the students to focus on and deepen content understandings without the technology tool getting in the way of the learning/information. Anytime and anywhere access is also possible via mobile devices. That's always a plus. The support center is just that, supportive, although I didn't need to use it. Would like a way to more easily include images and websites for further support for the students that would benefit from those resources within a discussion, poll, or quiz. Otherwise, a great online option for quick formative information gathering and surface level summative assessments.
