Socrative - Online Student Response System If you have a SMART Board in your classroom you may be familiar with the SMART Clicker device that polls student responses to teacher initiated questions. While this is a great way to gauge student understanding quickly, it is a costly solution and relies on familiarity with SMART products. If you’re looking for an alternative to purchasing equipment based response tools, check out Socrative.com as an effective student response system. Socrative runs on a variety of devices. Tablets, smartphones, laptops, and desktop computers with an internet browser are all capable of running Socrative – enabling schools to either use their own 1:1 devices or allowing them to take advantage of the technology students come to school with (BYOT) to run the web-based app.
