Plickers

Plickers

Plickers is a fun way to get your students to answer questions. All you need to do is print out the QR codes for each student then hand them out and a device to check their answers. Each side of the square represents a letter answer, a, b, c, or d, the students turn the card so that the correct answer is on the top. You can make your own questions and answers. Once you ask a question students just turn the paper so that the correct answer is at the top, then teacher holds up their device scanning all answers at once. Plickers gives real time results, so that the teacher can quickly adapt to the students and give them more help or less help with. topics they are quickly grasping or maybe not getting.
