…their names aren’t attached to their work) to correct misconceptions. With Socrative automaticallygenerated codes, “quizzes” are really easy to share. Try this one on solutions to inequalities in one variable. The “quiz” (which I used as a teacherpaced warmup/discussion starter in class) takes advantage of the feature that allows more than one answer in a multiplechoice prompt to be correct. Go to Socrative.com and import this quiz for ideas,… Continue reading

The Blame Game
…t is *GASP* graded. Earlier this year, I could agree with my students when Socrative was used for graded assessments. It IS very easy to accidentally press the wrong answer choice on a touchsensitive iPad screen. Though I asked students to be careful and intentional about selecting their answer choices, I didn’t like the anxiety it caused them to have no recourse if they made a mistake. So, I investigated other options and have been using ThatQui… Continue reading

…heet into the 21st century by converting it to a 10question True or False Socrative “quiz” for my students to try today. I projected the teacher view on my Smartboard while students used their iPads to weigh in on this 10 question “TeacherPaced Quiz” in real time. It rocked. Watching the bar graph move and dance around as each student answered the question was just plain neato. The miniteaching I did between questions dispelled misconceptions…. Continue reading
Free Your Mind… and the Tech May Follow
…lming. We don’t have time. We open a blank Nearpod/Desmos Activity Builder/Socrative quiz, stare at the screen, and close it back up. Maybe we start creating a “lesson” and get frustrated, or think it’s not “good enough” so we drop it. The saddest part about when this happens is *not* that folks aren’t “integrating technology”. Rather, it’s about a missed opportunity to examine student thinking. To give them a voice during instruction. To see thei… Continue reading

MS Sunday Funday – Grading (or not grading) Homework…? That is the question!
…ither ask for answers verbally, display the answer key, or use a tool like Socrative or Nearpod to spotcheck specific problems. Generally, questions are minimal after a “huddle” since students help one another talk through and correct errors or misconceptions. This process helps me know if I need to do a little reteaching before moving forward as well. To put the homework “grades” in perspective, my current district chooses to weight homework as… Continue reading

How do you make student thinking visible?
…twitter.com/1lKW7Z2lrn — Cathy Yenca (@mathycathy) December 10, 2015 Use Socrative in “teacherpaced” mode to closely examine one question at a time, and student responses to the question, while including students in the process. (Blog post at NCTM’S MTMS “Blogarithm” coming soon – will link back!) Use Socrative in “studentpaced” mode to look for trends in incorrect answers. Why did so many students miss suchandsuch question? What was the mis… Continue reading

I Love When That Happens
…t… After our daily “homework huddle”, I told the students I had prepared a Socrative quiz for them. If they did well, I’d introduce them to a new app. If they didn’t do well, the worksheet would reign! Today, I chose to “Hide Live Results” for the 8 question teacherpaced Socrative quiz, until every student weighed in. Oh, the pressure! I watched students toil and squirm before covering their eyes to touch their iPad screens, in hopes they had cho… Continue reading
