Flubaroo for You!


Do you use (or want to!) Google Forms to give your students assessments? If not, you should be! Environmentally friendly, easy on the back and organized, Google Forms are a great way to assess students whether it be a short quiz or essay test.

But what about grading? And giving students feedback? Their scores? I hear you, but that’s where Flubaroo comes in! It’s a free add-on service available to Google Apps users that will grade all of those tests for you! Whoo hoo! Don’t you just love less work!

So, how does it work, you may ask. You begin by creating a Google Form and creating your questions. After the form is created, you take the quiz, creating the answer key. Next, assign the quiz to your students. Once everyone is done, grade the quiz with Flubaroo and review the grades. Lastly, you can email the grades to students. (This assumes you asked them for their email as part of the quiz.) That’s it! Pretty easy, huh!

You can learn more and get the Flubaroo Script here. Here is a step-by-step overview as well. Have fun giving quizzes! I’m sure your students will LOVE it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

BrainPop & ActiVotes/ActivExpressions


So, this isn’t new, but it may be for some. BrainPop, that wonderful animated video site, is integrated with Promethean’s ActiVotes and ActivExpressions. What does this mean for you? Well, the next time you show your class a video and get to the quiz, you can plug in your ActivHub, fire up the votes or expressions and have your class take the quiz using a familiar tool!

To set up the connection between BrainPop and the ActiVotes or ActivExpressions, you will need to download and install the Flash Bridge. It can be found here.

Once the Flash Bridge is installed you will be able to see the ActiVote or ActivExpression icon seen at the bottom or the image.

To see the ActiVotes and ActivExpression in action visit BrainPop’s web site to view a webinar. Or, stop by and see me for a demonstration!
