Quickfire is an ideal tool to use during a lesson to introduce, assess, review and reinforce student knowledge and understanding in class. It provides the teacher with the responses of the entire class in real time. Student answers are displayed anonymously on a whiteboard to develop confidence and encourage risk-taking.
Introducing a new topic
Reviewing a lesson or topic
Assessing student progress
1. Ask a question
Questions can be prepared in advance or typed directly on the whiteboard. A timer is available to encourage students to keep up with the pace of the lesson.
2. Students respond using their personal devices
You can ask the students to respond using text or canvas.
3. Share answers anonymously on the whiteboard
You can request for students to improve and re-submit their answer at any stage.
4. Review responses collaboratively
Use the answers to review assess knowledge and understanding before moving onto the next question.
5. Lesson data is saved for review
You can view the responses from the whole class – or from an individual student, enabling you to assess the progress of each student over time.
