- Latecia Dixon-Smith, 1st Grade Teacher, CICS Loomis Primary Academy, IL “... students see their progress, identify areas of concern, and become invested in the direction of their learning.” I use Qwizdom for two distinct but equally important tasks in my classroom. Using the paper-based Answer Key, I can use real-time data to stop and re-teach skills, re-direct or select small groups for extra work during daily do nows or weekly quizzes. This allows me to focus on the skills to be bolstered and not bore the class (and myself) reteaching skills clearly mastered. I also use Qwizdom as an assessment tool and use the data generated to allow the kids to direct the thrust of further instruction. The exportable graphs allow my students to see and react to their class, and even sometimes personal, data. This allows the students to see their progress, identify areas of concern, and become invested in the direction of their learning. - Nathaniel Baker, 6th Grade Science/Math Special Ed Teacher, Archimedes Academy, NY 18 “Qwizdom is one of the greatest products that I as a teacher have been introduced to!” My colleague and I are currently teaching 10th Year Aircraft Structures at Aviation High School in Long Island City, New York. I was introduced to Qwizdom by a friend that is a principal in upstate New York. She highly praised Qwizdom, and explained it to me - how it is interactive and students are able to be assessed. This intrigued me.

I recently began using Qwizdom and I am quite pleased with the product. It is an excellent tool that has helped me to identify what my students have learned. The students enjoy and appreciate the fact that they are assessed based on what they have learned. They like the fact that they can get questions correct and that it is displayed on the Smartboard. It is a great tool that is used to quiz students as well. Qwizdom is one of the greatest products that I as a teacher have been introduced to! - Antonio Pepenella, Aircraft Maintenance Technology Instructor, Aviation High School, NY “The incorporation of the Qwizdom system into the school curriculum has proven to be an invaluable asset...” The incorporation of the Qwizdom system into the school curriculum has proven to be an invaluable asset at Fulton Leadership Academy. The Answer Key function is quick and easy for creating homework checks. It provides teachers with immediate feedback of student performance. This enables the teachers to drive and direct instruction.

Qwizdom Online provides a variety of engaging educational slides tailored to Georgia Performance Standards;

thus promoting an interactive classroom instead of the usual book-riddled instruction. Major tests and quizzes that usually require more time to grade are put on Qwizdom where answers can be keyed in and graded. - Neal Christian, Curriculum Specialist, Fulton Leadership Academy, GA “Qwizdom student response systems are fantastic teaching tools...” The Qwizdom student response systems are fantastic teaching tools that I have been able to utilize within my classroom. My students are always engaged during lessons when I’m using the response systems. I am able to assess them within seconds in order to provide further instruction or continue onto the next concept. On the other end, my students are able to get instant feedback sent to their remote. It is a great self-assessment tool – they can check their work or re-read the problem to see if they made a mistake and are then able to fix it. - Jessica Gale, 5th Grade Teacher, Herman Dummer Elementary, IL “i can’t imagine not having the Qwizdom remotes in my classroom.” It might actually be easier to answer how I DON’T use Qwizdom in my classroom than how I DO use Qwizdom.

My remotes are truly an integral piece of equipment in my science classroom. I use them almost daily for checking understanding during note presentations, for taking quizzes and tests, and of course, the students’ favorite is to play review games, especially the Mission to Mars feature. When I teach math, I have the students text in their answers to selected homework problems to check for understanding before we start the new lesson. I can’t imagine not having the Qwizdom remotes in my classroom. - Roxanne Kuerschner, High School Teacher, Waconia High School, MN “The excitement that is generated when we play the games is unreal!” As a teacher in a small, rural school, my students and I are very excited to have the Qwizdom remotes and the Q7 Presenter Tablet. I have used these in all of my math classes with all levels of students. They all agree that it makes learning math fun! The excitement that is generated when we play the games is unreal! Until I had the Qwizdom remotes, I never had a student say, “Could we do one more problem, please?” I just love the effect that the interaction with the remotes and the tablet has on my students. - Debra Crable, Algebra I & Geometry Teacher, Independence High School,TN
