A top ten list of technologies I enjoyed.

It is a fun and interactive way to quiz your class and see areas they have down and also see areas where some are struggling. The students are able to gain points for each question. The player who answers the most questions correct gets first place. I will use it to quiz my students and make sure they are understanding the material.

I will use it in my classroom as a way to keep in touch with parents and letting them know what homework is do. I will also use it as a bribe for my students behavior. The students will want to gain points, so they won't act out or disrupt class.
