Technology Thursday: Great New Apps and Ideas

I am so excited to link up with Technology Thursday from Teaching Trio! Just last week I found this great new app called Pick Me! 

See it down there in the bottom row? It's the perfect app (cheap too) for tracking student responses. You sign up for an account, import your list:

Then as you teach it does several things:
-randomly picks a name from your student list until all students have been called on
-gives you an opportunity to mark if students were correct or incorrect
-generates a report based for you to access later

How cool is that? All on your phone! Way easier than having a cup of sticks and a clipboard. I have never been able to have the ability to juggle both of those and focus on teaching. Plus, if you are in the hallway and have arrived somewhere early, you have the ability to question, record, and collect data all at the same time!
