What's your favorite interactive quiz app? There are plenty of them, allowing teachers to energize their class, training and online courses. However, it is easy to choose a tool that does not quite meet the initial need or the educational intention ... How to navigate? Follow the guide!
Patrice Tourangeau and Sonya Fiset, both advisers to RÉCIT, presented self-training on the theme of interactive questionnaires that they developed during recent training days on the integration of digital technology in educational counseling.
Interactive quizzes are used primarily in the classroom to engage students, to provide immediate feedback, and to allow the teacher to regulate their teaching. Not surprisingly, they gained popularity last year with distance education, but they will continue to be used in the classroom ... to the students' delight, who appreciate them enormously.
In order to allow teachers (and educational advisers) to find their way more easily among the interactive questionnaires, a self-study has been developed and is now available on Campus RÉCIT. Lasting 2 to 5 hours, it makes it possible to make the link between the different educational intentions and digital tools.
For example, do you want your students to:
· Share their state of mind?
· Give their opinion on a subject?
· Demonstrate what they know about a topic?
· Start a reflection?
For each of the intentions (surveys, evaluations, etc.), some applications may prove to be more suitable than others to use.
3 decision support tools
In a very concrete way, the RÉCIT team has developed three practical tools to guide teachers and trainers in choosing an application:
· A double entry table presenting the advantages of a dozen applications according to certain criteria (a PDF version of the board is available for download and just might become your new best friend!);
· A decision-making flowchart according to a few criteria which makes it possible to choose the application based on a need;
· A guiding questionnaire : a form to complete which proposes one or more applications to use according to the expressed need.
