How I Use It
This is great to use to get the students engaged quickly. You can use this at the beginning of class as a "bellringer". It engages the students and surprisingly the students will become excited about scoring the points and will want to be in class on time. the students would come into the class and use their phones or ipods/ipads and immediately be able to start the quiz. This was a quick way for us to review the information already covered or for me to assess who did their homework.
My Take
It is competitive and fun for the kids. It cannot be used all the time or the students will no longer find it exciting. It is just another form of a quiz, but I have noticed that the kids like it because it is different.
