How I Use It
Socrative is a good tool for learning. I started using this tool by creating my account. After that I built my quiz about Spatial Inequality. In class, I asked my students to log in using their names and the quiz code, which allow them to find the assigned questions and answer them. What my students and I liked most is the live progress of their results they can see on the screen. In addition, they loved the immediate feedback they receive after answering each. Later on, I displayed the results to students and asked them to see the least answered questions. We used this data as a baseline for a class discussion about the different solutions and strategies to cover the academic needs of students. What students liked also is the individual report which I got from Socrative and sent to each one of them. I used also this tool to store all my quizzes and my students data which I use them later when I prepare my lesson plans.
My Take
Socrative is a good tool for making learning easier and effective. In fact it allows the teacher to not only built his or her own quizzes, but also to import quizzes from the store. This tool is good as it gives the opportunity to students to see the live progress of their results. This part of the work is the one that is mostly liked by students and the teacher. I love also the tool as it enables the teacher to get all the students data of that quiz to use it for planning later on. Furthermore, Socrative helps teachers with class and individual reports to check the class academic needs as well as the learning gaps of every student. This tool helped my students learn new pieces of information through the immediate feedback they receive. Besides, it has made my work easier as all my students have become focused in class and well-engaged through constructive participation. However, Socrative does not allow students to see their names on the class screen, which makes it less interesting from other interactive apps such as Kahoot.
