Gradecam.com

I was looking through my blog posts and was surprised to find that I had not shared my favorite tool. Using this tool can revolutionize your classroom. How many of you would love to know if what students were supposed to learn today was actually learned? How many of you would love to know if students actually read the assigned reading the night before? How many of you would love to know if students are actually listening while you are talking? Well, I have a way for you to gather that information. Gradecam.com is an excellent resource for the classroom teacher. The free version allows teachers up to 10 question choices. This video from Gradecam gives you an overview of how the product works. Below the video, you will find suggestions and ideas for ways to use Gradecam in your classroom.

Google Slides: Slides Q&A

While at TCEA 2017, I discovered Google Slides has begun to offer a Q&A feature. This is an interesting tool for presentations. By using Slides Q&A, a presenter has the ability to collect real time feedback from audience members. Audience members can post questions or comments and other members can like the question or post letting the presenter know what audience members would be interested in hearing more about.  
**An important point for teachers, there is the ability to check anonymous when posting. Teachers will want to be sure they have a protocol set for their students.
