How I Use It
I have used it to assess student understanding on the fly to inform my teaching. I have used it to engage students in demonstrating their understanding of content with the challenge type quizzing. I have used it to survey students on their feelings about a lesson and any questions they still have.
The simplicity and flexibility of creating "quizzes" makes Socrative a useful tool for many purposes in my teaching. It's device independent feature supports any BYOD environment. I would prefer one app rather than separate teacher and student apps on mobile devices.
