The next school year will bring enormous challenges for many educators. We’d like to share our respect and admiration for all teachers. We know how hard you work for your students.
We understand that there will be many different classroom scenarios in the fall, including different forms of hybrid teaching and scheduling. This guide is designed to help teachers understand how Plickers can fit into their classroom.
Using Plickers Cards and Plickers e-Learning
Generally, Plickers is designed for in-classroom teaching using our standard Plickers Cards. We're also offering a new e-Learning feature that allows students to participate securely at home and answer Questions in real-time.
Released as an experimental feature in March, Plickers e-Learning has now been tested by over 10,000 teachers and is now ready-to-use for all Plickers teachers.
Throughout the next school year, you will be able to instantly and easily switch between Cards and e-Learning-based Plickers, as well as use both methods simultaneously when needed.
Note: Plickers is not a great fit for classrooms adopting an “asynchronous” learning model in the fall. Plickers does not support “asynchronous” or “self-paced” learning. We'd recommend using an alternative platform for this – many of our teachers will be using Quizizz, Google Forms, Microsoft Forms, and Kahoot for self-paced assignments.
