Socrative is a learner response system currently in beta. Here’s how it works:
Teachers set up a quiz or survey for students to respond to, and students use any Internet connected device to access the quiz or survey (join the room).
Students’ responses are charted in real time. Those responses can be projected from the teacher’s computer for the class to see (Space Race screen shown below).
Results can be saved, downloaded or e-mailed in a spreadsheet format.
The following video shows my my students using my favorite Socrative feature: Taking a quiz as a Space Race.
In all my years of teaching I’ve never had students begging me to give them quizzes until I started using Socrative!
(See my post about Soapbox to learn about another great learner response system.)
