There is a free version of Socrative and students can access the lecturer’s quizzes in seconds by typing ‘Socrative student login’ onto a search engine, and then typing in a room name. The student is not required to undergo any registration process, so this makes Socrative one of my personal favourites. With Socrative, lecturers can create quizzes, polls and exit tickets, to check knowledge before during and after class. Results can be viewed live by the lecturer and either shown on the whiteboard or kept hidden.
This tool also allows for collaboration whereby students can be put into groups to compete in a ‘space race’, with the winning team being the first group to answer all the questions correctly. Socrative is also a useful tool for flipped learning whereby the quiz can be launched before the class for students to complete, thus allowing the lecturer to have advanced knowledge of any areas needing further clarification before the lesson.
