Plickers - Clickers, Simplified
Formative Assessment, Barcode, Qr Code, Gather Student, Clicker App, Op Apple, It Works
No batteries to lose or replace, no expensive equipment to buy, no BYOD, and no one left out. How it works: Each student gets a unique barcode – a paper clicker. Students answer questions by showing their barcodes to the teacher's smartphone. The teacher gets a real-time bar graph and the data is stored individually by student.
Plickers is a easy to use response system that simplifies the clicker process. Students only need a paper barcode to respond to questions. Plickers is free and does not require the students to have an electronic device to use it. I can use this in a health and wellness class to get student responses throughout a lecture.
Plickers - Clickers, SimplifiedThe way this works is students are given a unique QR code, the teacher asks the questions, and the student answers by showing the QR code to the teacher's smart phone. Simple, easy, and all the educator needs is to download the free mobile app (iOS/Android) to assess students and get instant real-time results in a bar graph.
Student response tool. Students use QR codes that are scanned by the teacher's mobile device to answer questions. Data is sorted amongst student names and responses. QR codes can be printed from the site for use in the classroom.
Student response system using QR codes. Great for classrooms without 1:1 technology.
Very cool low, high-tech formative assessment tool.

Integrate iPads Into Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy With This ‘Padagogy Wheel’ #Classroom #technology #ideas
Edudemic is a great resources for teachers (and students) with plenty of ideas for how to incorporate technology in the classroom. This Pedagogy Wheel integrates iPads and Bloom's Taxonomy
The Padagogy Wheel- 62 iPad apps sorted by Bloom's Taxonomy Level complete with action verbs and activities. Amazing free printable resource!
The Padagogy Wheel During my research I saw lots of great work done by others using Bloom’s Taxonomy including the Revised Taxonomy which has now become the Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy. However when I discovered the excellent pioneer work done by Kathy Schrock with “Bloomin’ Apps” I got the idea for the Padagogy Wheel.
Integrate iPads Into Blooms Digital Taxonomy With This Padagogy Wheel - super easy to find what you are looking for. find what you need help with in the classroom and find the right app. One downside is that not all are free or allowed in all school districts. would be a great resource for ideas though.
This Bloom's Taxonomy wheel breaks down exactly how we can use various iPad apps and technology in the classroom in a meaningful and purposeful way. Not only does it organize various iPad apps by the different levels of Bloom's Taxonomy, but it also provides various activity suggestions. A great reference for planning tasks.
