How I Use It
I use Socrative as a review game for the students. The students enjoyed being able to work as a team in the Space-Race mode. It also helped students see where the holes were in their understanding of the material and gave them specific direction for test preparation. For all students to utilize this product in class, each needs access to a smart device.
My Take
I like that this product is accessible through technology that students carry with them (e.g., smart phones) and is incredibly easy to use. I like that it gives teacher's instant feedback as to how well students are understanding and remembering subject matter. As far as a constructive critique, it seems to be more geared toward courses that require recollection of facts, but still allows for teacher's to ask questions that require critical thought.
