Looking for a different student response system to try in your Chromebook classroom? Check out Geddit!
Just yesterday, I was thinking of a way that I could “techify” an idea a tool a teacher friend uses in her classroom. She has four folders in her room, and at the end of the class period, her students drop a piece of paper in one of those folders to indicate how comfortable they feel with the new content. Geddit is the techified version of that awesome system!
I’m sure I can speak for most teachers when I say that the students who don’t understand a concept are not very likely to announce to the class that they don’t understand the concept. The students that do understand are ready to jump to the next task, while their classmates (who may be shy) simply hope to blend into the walls of the classroom. Geddit can help teachers reach those students who just don’t want to blurt out that they don’t get it!
Geddit works very similar to Socrative in that students “check in,” and that it can be used on a variety of platforms, including CHROME! And…students can choose “log in with Google” to avoid making yet another username and password that they will most likely forget! Awesome!
As students respond to questions, the teacher gets immediate COLOR CODED feedback as to what the students know, what they don’t know, who doesn’t know the concept, etc. Think of the wonderful scaffolding activities that can be used in the classroom with the immediate feedback we receive by using Geddit!
If you are lucky enough to be in a 1:1 classroom, or if you will soon move to a 1:1 environment like me, Geddit is definitely worth checking out. The account is free and DOESN’T REQUIRE ANOTHER LOG IN! Give it a try!
Thanks for reading 🙂
