Socrative.com may have been around for a while now, but if you haven’t had a look at it recently or tried out their Socrative 2.0, it’s definitely worth a look.
If you’ve never heard of it, it’s a web-based student-response system that essentially replaces ‘Clickers’. They have iOS and Android apps, but I find the new web-based interface excellent and not worth the bother of app installation and then it’s the same experience on any device.
Socrative is an easy and effective way to gage student learning in real time. The 2.0 web version allows this to happen with ease. Teachers can pre-write multiple choice, true and false, or written answer questions and start and control the quiz from any device with the web. The new interface for both teachers and students is modern looking and pretty hip; the students tend to like it.
