Plickers is a wonderful web tool that allows teachers to collect real-tine feedback from students without them having or using any device. All they will use are cards with numbers and alphabets on them.

As a teacher you use Plickers to gather data to use in your formative assessments. You can use polls, multiple questions, quick checks for understanding, true/false questions and many more.As you collect data from students, you can also view it together with them in the form of a group snapshot in a graph.

 The great thing about this app is that students do not need to use any computer or device. You will have to open an account on Plickers, download the app and  create a class. Once the class is created , add your students by typing their names. A card number will automatically be assigned to each name you type in. These cards are what your students will be using for answers in the class. Plickers is free and is available for both iOS and Android devices.
