Try This Out!

Plickers is a simple to use tool that lets teachers collect real-time formative assessment data without the need for students to have devices. A Plicker is an image similar to a QR code that is printed out (laminate for more durability) and then scanned by the teacher's smartphone or tablet. The answer choice is recognized based on the way the student holds the image.


Check out these easy steps for using Plickers in your classroom posted by EmergingEdTech.com or watch the video posted to YouTube by Blair Lambert.

Google Classroom Tip--Share Different Sets of Resources and Materials with Students in the Same Class

Google Classroom allows you to assign to your entire class at once or to specific sets of students within the class. This would be a great option for an assignment where different groups worked on separate components and came together as a whole or where different students need to complete different problem numbers on a worksheet. Once you are in the Google Classroom, just select the drop down and select which students get the assignment you are posting. See image below.
