FAQs 1) Thirteen steps makes Socrative looks difficult! My slides make it look more difficult than it actually is. It is quite intuitive. Once you are registered I think you will find it fairly straight forward. Do let me know if you manage to simplify them! 2) Do my students’ require a smart phone? No. Any device that is connected to the internet will work. 3) Can they do a quiz in their own time, say, as a homework activity? Yes. Providing the quiz is open and they can reach Socrative, they can do it anywhere, any time. 4) My students’ don’t have a PC or mobile device. Often students will share and work together but ILT Development have a number of Asus mini-laptops which we are happy to lend out. Just ask Richard or Keith. 5) What is the process for borrowing one of these? The student signs a declaration that they will use it within the Terms of the current IT policy and a return date is agreed and they take it away with them! 6) Why did you use a QR code in your demo? It’s a quick and effortless way of handing out a web address. 7) What do you need to use a QR code? Most new smart phones come with a QR code reader. If not a i-Nigma can be downloaded for free from http://www.i-nigma.com/i-nigmahp.html 8) How do you create a QR code? Very easy. Just go to http://qrcode.kaywa.com/
