Plickers App.  

    I love this app.  It is fun and EL students along with every student in the classroom see’s immediate feedback on the answer to their question.  

 At the beginning of the semester, the teacher hands out to each student an assigned chart.  This laminated chart has A/B/C/D written on each side. The student will hold up the letter A/B/C/D they are choosing for their multiple choice question.  Their answer letter needs to be on the top, facing the top as the hold the chart up facing the teacher. The teacher will use the ipad to scan the class and the students answer will show up on the front board.  The student has real time, ASAP answer back to their answering of the question. In this case, the class was Biology. Doing this weekly, allows the student to succeed a little more, and completely serves the EL student.  The EL student participates with the mainstream student and has the powerful learning while participating on a whole class basis.  

     The Plickers app can be found on the following website of 50 digital education tools.

Since, I have seen and participated with the app, I find it powerful/interactive/ and serves all the educational learners needs for learning:  i.e. visual/hearing/tactile/whole group participation/individual participation/immediate feedback/fun/rewarding/gratifying.  (dowloaded 2/27/2016)
