Hereï¿½s a great way to quickly review material such as vocabulary words. Questions from the selected topic are displayed at random for a few seconds giving all students a chance to think of the answer. The value of the reward for this question is also displayed. After a few questions, one or two studentï¿½s names are displayed. They simply call out the answer to get the reward. Itï¿½s easy to enter as many as 500 questions for up to 40 different topics.
In my technology class I use it for a few minutes a couple of times a week to review quantities, symbols and units. In environmental besides vocabulary, I give a characteristic of a biome for the student to identify the biome. It would work great for math problems or even for identifying whether a word is spelled correctly.
