Usage: I do not currently use it

Strengths: I like the interactiveness and the fact that you can send questions and have them send it right back to see how the students are doing confidentially. As a student, I always enjoyed getting use the iClicker and jeopardy type devices where we could click and compete against classmates, but we never got any feedback or reasoning why we got it wrong. It is a definite improvement on the just multiple choice clickers though which is really cool.

Suggestions for Improvement: I would want a feature where I can send the question back to them if they got it wrong so they have another chance. He said that the feature is in the future, but I think that would be a priority because to me it does not do any good to use this device if the students cannot get feedback. I would love to see where kids get another chance to correct their mistake and ask their peers why they got it rong.

Verdict: I would recommend it to middle school teachers or elementary school teachers to use on an infrequent basis because it adds excitement and some diversity to the classroom and at the younger ages especially I feel like they would really enjoy it.
