EXITTICKET: EdStart.com has acquired student response system ExitTicket. ExitTicket was designed in the classroom by Dr. Louise Water and teachers at Leadership Public Schools as a joint effort to manage classroom and feedback system. According to Dr. Louise Waters, Superintendent and CEO of LPS:
“Because ExitTicket has been designed by teachers directly in the classroom, it feels very natural to both students and teachers. It’s an innovative blend of real-time technologies and instructional strategies that offer a very new and unique insight to standards aligned student assessment data. ExitTicket enables teachers to truly deliver differentiated and personalized learning strategies to every student at an individual level.”
The tool was made publicly available to all teachers for free in August of 2013; within six months, more than 2,500 schools in 92 countries were using the tool. For more info, click here.
