Classroom Resource: Plickers


Thanks Michaella for introducing me to Plickers through her blog post titled: “QR codes to assess student learning


This is such an interesting way to use QR codes!

Teacher asks a question with up to four multiple-choice answers. Students hold up the code in a particular orientation to convey their answer to the question. Teacher scans code. Program uses the scanned data to guage student understanding, and presents the data in a cool graph (and we all know how much I love data!).

The app is free, and the codes can be downloaded and printed for free. I’m yet to download the app, so I can’t give a personal review on it, but I am excited about the possibilities.
