Individualizes Feedback for Those Previously Afraid to Ask
My name is Jessica Hunter. I teach 10th and 9th grade Geometry at Sterlington High School in North Louisiana. While our school is not 1:1, we are rapidly approaching this ratio. Almost every classroom has either a class set of chromebooks, laptops or iPads. We also have SmartBoards and Smart TVs. I use technology on a daily basis. I use my SmartBoard during whole class instruction and my iPads during individual practice by using Classkick. I also Classkick for for individualized feedback for students who are afraid to ask questions. It has helped me in my room tremendously because these students who are afraid to ask questions out loud are able to ask me questions individually and usually anonymously–or they can get help from their peers. Classkick allows my students to work individually on the same assignment while allowing me to observe and help students as needed. I wouldn’t be able to provide individualized feedback and practice as often, or meaningful station activities without Classkick. The multiple other things that I can't do without Classkick are individualized mathematics practice that I do after my instruction, or online office hours which I do in the afternoon after school, homework practice, or during mathematics design collaborative lessons ('MDC lessons').
