The amazing use of technology in the classroom.

For Sky Oaks Elementary School math teachers Paul Berge and Beth Leighton, iPads in the hands of students aren’t a fancy way for students to get more information. Instead, it’s about the students giving information to their teachers.

Using the Socrative app, Berge and Leighton create quick math quizzes that students can take at the beginning of a class using an iPad. Their answers, whether multiple choice or open-ended, are received by the teacher on his or her iPad.

“In just a few minutes, you can get feedback from students on whether or not they understand a concept,” Berge said. “Based on that, you can decide how best to teach that lesson. Maybe you can move on, or maybe you spend some more time on that subject, or maybe you split the class based on the results so everyone can move forward.”
