Plicker, Plicker Pumpkin Picker


Hitting the midway point to the Pumpkin Tech Smash this week, I’m doing a very simple but elegant Tech Smash with Pumpkins using Plickers.

1. Download and set up your Plickers account on your mobile device.

2. Set up your classes and student ID numbers and print our Plicker cards and laminate them.

3. Take a group of pumpkins and put the student card numbers on each one.

4. Now, create a quiz with Plickers and have students answer each question.

5. The top student who answers the most right picks their pumpkin.

6. Each pumpkin is assigned with a specific role. If the student gets their pumpkin and finds themselves the Student Leader. They have to create a lesson using pumpkins for the class.

7. If the student pumpkin says to roll an App Dice then they to come up with an App Smash to be used i the next lesson. This continues with the top 5 high scorers for the lesson.

This is a great way to differentiate instruction and do a pass off from teacher lead to student lead lessons. Give it a try.

  1. Hello just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.|

  2. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you have done a excellent job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox. Superb Blog!|

  3. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A small number of my blog readers have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?|
