6 different ways of getting student feedback in your iPad lesson.

Update 14-09-2012: Syncing Notability with Dropbox is possibly the easiest and best way of keeping track of your students’ work. 

One of the most difficult challenges for the teachers at my school is changing from workbooks and worksheets to get students to work and monitor their answers on the iPad. There are many ways to go about it. Here are 6 of them:

1. Google Forms

This one, is my go to tool form creating questionnaires. It is super easy to do and the different types of questions you can ask suit all types of lessons. The summary of responses is great for reporting the answers back to the class.

2. Twitter

In my mentor class last year there were almost no students who did not have a twitter account. So why not tap into this tool students ove to use. I use it mostly for brainstorming and giving each student a voice. I really noticed that I get answers from different students and not just the ones who always put up their hands. You can show the responses from the students on the smartboard or visualise them with the use of Wordle.

3. Socrative

Socrative allows you to fire questions at students in a game like setting. Students go to a virtual classroom and compete against each other. The pace of the questions can either be set by the teacher or students can advance through it on their own. The test can be auto-graded and teachers get an overview of all the answers given.

4. iBooks Widgets

I’ve previously written a post about making worksheets in iBooks. The widgets in iBooks Author however do not have the possibility to send the responses to the teacher. For this you’ll need to download a program from ibook-widgets.com. This allows you to insert a review widget where students have the option to email their responses to their teacher.

5. Nearpod

Nearpod is the most advanced educational app I have used yet. It allows teachers to add multimedia to their content and monitor students progress in real-time. The only downside to this app is that the pace can only be set by the teacher so all the students advance at the same time and at the same level.

6. Keynote

Keynote is often overlooked as a workbook app. However, as many teachers already make keynotes for their lessons it would be very easy for them to share the keynote and let students answer the questions in there. Below are some examples of some literature lessons.
