Blog app?

I'm looking for advice on a blog app that could be used in a computer lab for second grade students. I want to be able to ask questions and get student responses as a formative assessment. I've seen such an app at meetings but don't have it in my links yet. Any advice on what works well?


  1. I found what I was looking for. The app Socrative allows a teacher to create questions and get student responses from any device. We are using the lab laptops. I put a link on each desktop to the student response portion of Socrative. All the kids have to do is add themselves to our class with a six digit number on the teacher site. They loved seeing their numbers and names added to the class. This site will be very useful for formative assessments and quick responses to questions. I tried it with first and second graders today and both classes were successful.

  2. Terrific, I've heard of Socrative bu haven't really explored it. Thanks for sharing.
