This alternative is a good option for 1 iPad classrooms.
Plickers is a rapid-response classroom polling tool that uses paper cards rather than mobile devices for student responses.
To conduct a poll, a teacher creates a question and projects it on-screen. Students hold up their custom response cards (each card is different), turning the cards in different orientations to indicate their answers (one side up for A, another side up for B, and so on). The teacher holds up a device (like an iPad or Android) and Plickers does two things: 1. recognizes the students by name and 2. scans students’ responses, which are recorded. Responses can be automatically projected on a screen in the classroom, and teachers can track each student's responses over time.
