Socrative Gives Educators More Insight into Student Understanding


101 Days of Free Tech for Teachers, Day  83
Receive instant feedback on student understanding with Socrative. Available on any device, Socrative allows teachers to track student answers as they are teaching the lesson. These instant results make it easier for teachers to personalize learning and know when to go over a topic again, or move on. Results are presented in real-time, easy to read reports that only the teacher can see. Teachers also have the ability to design assessments that best fit their students’ needs and to receive the best possible assessment of understanding.

 How We Decide Which Free Tech Tools to Feature
Yup, there are thousands of apps, tools, services, websites, and other offerings — many free — designed for teachers and students. So, how do we sort through all of those to feature the ones which are most useful and interesting? Well… we start by sorting through thousands of these things… then we talk to the presenters in the SimpleK12 Teacher Learning Community and watch their videos closely… then we talk to many of the members in the Teacher Learning Community, teachers just like you who are using these apps and tools day in and day out. We’ve been doing this for over 30 years and have, in that time, developed a sense for what’s good and bad. Have we missed something that we should feature here? Most certainly. So, let us know in the Comments section what we should take a look at and we’ll throw ’em into the hopper.
