Cool Tools

Socrative is a student response system that allows you to receive instant feedback on student engagement in your lessons. Simply create a free teacher account at Socrative and you are ready to go! You can create and save quizzes in advance, allow students to ask questions about the lesson, take a vote on a topic, or offer an exit ticket to check for understanding. Your students connect to Socrative using any web-enabled device. Socrative will then send you a report so you can take a closer look at where students are struggling.

Mr. Dial shares a quick start video below. You can also find more tutorials in this My Big Campus bundle.
