How I Use It
I use Socrative in so many ways - quiz quizzes- formative or summarize, ideology surveys, novel or character discussions, exit slips.... The short answer feature is a great way for students to all have instant input or opinions on a topic that the whole class can then quickly compare via whiteboard.
One of the best things about Socrative is how you can use it as a feedback tool and/or for formative learning . After a practice quiz or survey or question about a novel character/element, I use the "How did we do?" feature to compare student responses. Did many students have a similar opinion? On a multiple choice question, did several students get the same question wrong? With the instant and great visual feedback, we can discuss immediately.
