Yeah, maybe I could have included this in my last post, but I’m a little behind in #MTBoS30 and that post was long enough.
At first I used Quizizz individually because each student had a Chromebook. I soon thought about using Quizizz in groups.
It’s amazing! Here’s how it works:
What I do (on the teacher end):
- Make questions or pull them from other people’s quizzes
- Choose these settings when we’re ready to play
- Start the game when all groups are in and all names are appropriate (Quizizz monitors this, too)
- Watch in amazement as students talk to each other about the math and actually want to get the questions correct (and answer questions if groups have them)
- Look at results after the game is done and talk about questions that were most commonly missed
What students do:
- Students are in a group and only one Chromebook is out.
- They come up with a team name
- They work on the problems together and answer them together
- They review their answers and work out the questions they got incorrect as a group
- They all get a prize if they win
This creates great mathematical talk and I rarely have a student that’s not invested. I use it in all of my classes.
Quand les étudiants demandent le Quizizz, vous savez que c’est très bon.
