Using phones/computers to quiz students

Check out these options for infusing lessons with technology in an appealing way to students: with their phones. :)

1) getkahoot.com

(We’re trying this one today–it actually takes into account how quickly they can answer, and it’ll show who is in the lead if you wish to show them.)

2) http://www.infuselearning.com/

(I haven’t used this one yet.)

3) http://socrative.com/

(I used this often last year as a ticket out–I couldn’t guarantee total participation, but most students did participate or look over a shoulder.)
