I missed yesterday's Tried it Tuesday but better late than never. See what Holly and the others are up to at
Last year we tried Socrative in my class as a clicker/feedback option because I kept hearing and seeing it everywhere. It was cool but I had some frustration about the limitations (the two biggest being the format is all one text line so I couldn't enter a poem easily and the other the lack of ability to add an image). Recently they added the ability to add pictures but I had already found an alternative by then.
I really like the website InfuseLearning.com, where there are a bunch of options for types of feedback. These could be pre-made quizzes or single spur of the moment questions for formative assessment.
As a teacher you need to create an account and then log in to send questions out to the class
Students can either be imported or entered manually ahead time and assigned to classes. Students can also enter on their own by putting the Room ID.
There are a wide variety of on the quick question formats. With the interactive tools students can draw on an image or explore a website that gets pushed out to them. As students answer questions they will show up so you can see them.

Teachers can also create multiple question quizzes (with 6 format types) where they can gather the results. Images can be added in this area as well.
You can share the quizzes that you create in several ways so others can use them in their class.
Infuse Learning has some Snapguides that will walk you through all kind of things
It is definitely worth checking out if your students have access to devices during class! Luckily it can be used in pretty much any subject.
Since it is actually Wednesday, I think I will also leave it over at
Thanks for dropping by. I leave again on Saturday (for San Fran/Monterey) so I will probably be sporadic for a bit. I'm still doing some reading but not much time for posting.
