Year 7 use Socrative

I had the real pleasure of teaching a group of Year 7 pupils this morning at RM Campus. I will be working with this group of IPACA pupils across the coming weeks to explore how new technologies can be used to support and inspire the development of their writing skills and also to provide the learners with a real audience for their work (more information on this very soon).

Today was an introduction session and together we explored various visual prompts to stimulate short bursts of writing. In the lesson, we used the brilliant (and free) App 'Socrative' as a smart student response system. Socrative is perfect for classroom use because it is safe, secure and can run on any tablet, smartphone or laptop. For more information check out: http://www.socrative.com or watch the below video:
