WHO: Teachers looking to engage students with classroom content in an interactive and engaging atmosphere.
HOW: Create an account at http://www.triventy.com/, create a quiz, and play with students. While making a quiz, the teacher can add a quiz image as well as individual question images. Teachers also have options for how long each question is given (5-60 seconds), making the quiz public, posting top 3 players during game, and sharing via social media after quiz completion. When making questions, teachers can invite others to create the quiz with them (great for student collaboration), and enter hints and “Did you know…” facts. Teachers can also make a question a “survey question” for in class polling.
WHEN: Triventy is a good option to end class for the day or week. Students will be engaged during the quiz and enjoy competing against their classmates.
The downside to Triventy is that it does not collect quiz results for the teacher to use later. This could be a great formative assessment tool if this feature were added. It is not the perfect tool for class, but it is a fun change of pace.
