Teacher Review for The Answer Pad

I use this app in my physical science class. My students love the interactive feature, especially the drawing. I can implement formative assessments on the fly with any device.

How I Use It
I use this product to demonstrate content comprehension. My students love the interactive feature where their answers could be shown on a Smartboard. The drawing feature is a favorite because they can see their classmates images and learn from each other. For example, I may have my students draw molecules or a image where Boyle's gas law appIies. I also use it for formative assessments, utilizing the multiple choice, true/false and short answer features with added images. Students can do this in class and I can even live monitor.
My Take
This is a 21st learning tool that enhances the curriculum. You can use it on the fly or have a more planned assessment. My students appreciate that I am adding innovative teaching practices into my classroom and are more accepting of showing their comprehension.
