- Is this a tool you would like to continue using with your students?
I really liked using this tool, it worked out great because we did a test review for Ancient Mesopotamia. Another thing that was great was that the students thought it was the coolest thing that I could see their answer just by a coded card. I think I would use it again if we had more time in class to focus only on a Plicker review.
- What were your likes/dislikes?
I like that every student's response was present. However, what I didn't like is that some students were cheaters and could see the answers of their neighbors. Also, I didn't like that the APP kept freezing. I would have to keep restarting it, which would lose the current answers I had. I am not sure if it would do that on the phone but the ipad kept freezing with another students name on the screen. It also struggled to read some of the student's responses, I kept having to go back.
- What would you do differently in the future?
I would give myself a little more time to prepare a more established lesson with it, that way it wasn't so True and False or multiple choice. Like opinion pieces- not that the data uses opinion, but I can see what students choose based on their answers.
- How did your students react to this tool?
They thought it was the coolest thing ever. That an ipad could read answers based off of a paper code that had their answer on it. They also, surprisingly, liked that there was instant data feedback on their answers. All of them kept asking, "How many got it right and how many got it wrong". It was
