This past year I discovered Boom Learning℠ and have been creating Boom Cards™ for my students. I have so much to learn in my 1:1 classroom. But, I have already discovered many valuable ways to use this new platform. Are you ready to try digital resources? Do you need help with blending learning or differentiating your instructional practices?
Teachers Pay Teachers and Boom Learning have teamed up to list Boom Cards in our TpT stores. So, I wrote this Free Teacher's Guide for Boom Cards
What is a Boom Card?
Boom Cards play on modern browsers (released in the last three years) on any modern browsers on interactive whiteboards, desktops, laptops, netbooks, Chromebooks, iPads, iPhones, Android tablets and phones, and Kindle-Fire tablets. Boom Cards apps are on The App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon Kindle Fire store. To redeem your Boom Cards, you will create an account for Boom Learning. The account you get with your purchase allows you to play the Boom Cards on interactive whiteboards and with individual students using Fast Play. Fast Play does not save student progress reports. Boom Learning will give customers who are new to Boom Cards, for one year, and at no charge, the ability to collect and maintain student progress reports for up to 80 students. To collect and maintain student progress reports, you must assign students individual usernames and passwords. At the end of that year, you may renew or choose not to renew. If you do not renew, you will be able to continue using Boom Cards with the Fast Play feature. Fast Play does not track individual progress."
Be sure to read the small print
When you purchase a set of Boom Cards on TpT you will have permanent access to the deck using Fast Play. Remember Fast Play does not save student progress reports, but it does provide you and your students with unlimited, lifetime play of the decks that you purchase through TpT.
TpT buyers who are new to Boom Learning will be given a free, one year membership with the ability to collect and maintain student progress reports for up to 80 students. You must enter student names and individual passwords in your classes to receive the reports. At the end of the one-year period, you will need to purchase a paid account to continue access to the student reports.
There are four levels of Boom memberships. The three paid levels are reasonable, and all are under $25 per year.
Remember, at the end of the free-period, you are NOT required to purchase a Boom membership. You will always have lifetime play of the decks in the “Fast Play” mode.
IT'S SO QUICK TO SET UP YOUR FREE BOOM ACCOUNT:

2. Click “Get Started”
3. Set up an email and password for your FREE BOOM LEARNING ACCOUNT.
4. Your BOOM Cards will be stored in the “Library” on the top blue bar.
This is truly NO PREP! Meant to save you time (no printing, copying, cutting, laminating, stapling, collecting, or grading). You are freed to focus on your students and their mathematical abilities.
PLUS, you get a special BONUS of 15 BOOM Digital Task Cards!
Students just need a computer, iPad or Kindle-Fire and they can complete these task cards online. You can also use Boom Cards through your interactive whiteboard! These cards are self-checking!
Boom Cards offer an easy way for teachers to assess important skills. Engage you student's using a new technology tool and provide blended learning and variety.
