How I Use It
I use Socrative for quick polls and quizzes. It is also useful as exit tickets and for concept review. I have a 1:1 iPad ratio in my class and the it works well to give students immediate feedback on their responses. To further motivate students, you can use the Space Race function and have groups compete to answer the questions.
I really enjoy using this product with the students. Students have fun when working with groups and are given immediate feedback when they are working on alone. It is also a great way for teachers to compile data on responses. If given as a poll, all answers can easily be sorted by category. If given as a quiz, teachers can see easily which concepts the students mastered and which concepts the students need more help with.
