Instructional Ideas

  1. As a review, teachers can have students complete a quiz in this app.
  2. As a class trivia game, teachers can divide their class into teams. The teacher can connect an iPad to a projector, so all teams can see the questions at the same time. Teams can then “buzz” in to answer a question or teams can take turns answering questions. For each correct answer, a team will earn a point. If a team answers incorrectly, the team will lose a point.
  3. If students come to a question they do not know while taking a quiz, teachers can require students to conduct Internet research to find the correct answer.
  4. After students become familiar with the types of questions used by this app, teachers can assign them a topic and let them create a quiz. Students can write their quiz using an Office app and email it to their teacher. The teacher can post the quiz to a class website for other students to take.
