Mixing Business with Pleasure: Using Socrative on Smartphones in Class!

Most students have smartphones. I didn’t used to enjoy them fooling around with these gadgets in class, whether they were browsing through their social media updates or texting.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Learning Technology Advisor, Collège Sainte-Anne

It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
