How many times have you been bombarded with a sea of full of student hands and had no idea where to start? It can be difficult to answer all of your student's questions in a timely manner. A friend of mine, created a new website called ClassroomQ to address this dilemma. Here is how the site works.
Step 1: Create an Account
First, you will want to visit ClassroomQ and create a free teacher account.
Step 2: Start Your Session
Next, you will want to start your first Classroom Q session. As a teacher, you can customize whether you want a sound to play or student comments to appear in your message queue.
Step 3: Have Your Students Join!
No need to worry about creating student accounts! Students will enter in a pin to join your session, very much like Kahoot, NearPod, etc.
Step 4: Have Your Students Ask Questions!
Finally, you are ready to answer student questions. Students will use ClassroomQ to raise their hand and add a question or comment in the comments section. Questions will appear in the order they were received in your queue. No need to choose who goes first, second, third, etc.
Step 5: Check it Off
As a teacher, you can go around the room and respond to student needs in the order they were received. When you are finished, simply click on the student's name and the question is checked off your list. The next question will appear on your list.
I really love this tool because it gives all students the opportunity to ask questions in realtime. It eliminates the barriers that many shy students face. They can ask a question without fear of embarrassment. It eliminates the conflict that arises when you are bombarded with questions and don't know where to start.
