In My Pocket: A Dive into what I have stashed in Pocket

Every time I look at my blog, I realize I want to blog more…and then school/life happens and I don’t get to it, but I keep putting articles into Pocket to use for future posts.  If you haven’t heard of Pocket, I cannot recommend it enough.


Head to their site for more information, but it is a place to put articles, videos, websites…pretty much anything that you can tag and sort later.  It syncs across devices, so you can save on the laptop and read it on your iPad.  It is great…when you remember to tag things correctly and go through your articles once in a while.


What I have decided to do is go through my list and choose a random article, share it with you, and discuss it.  Perhaps figure out why I saved it and see if it is something that has stood up over the years.  I have been using Pocket for a while…never know what we will find.

35 Digital Tools To Create Simple Quizzes And Collect Feedback From Students

Having entered the realm of instructional coaching in the last 2 years, I am a sucker for articles that have lists of anything, especially formative assessment tools.  You can never have too many.  What is interesting about this list, is that some of them (like educanon) have changed names (to playposit) or added features (like google forms adding quizzes without using an add-on).  Sites like Edmodo can be used to make simple quizzes, but they can do so much more.

Of all of the sites listed here, I have used PollEverywhere, which I like, but I prefer Mentimeter now.  I am going to check the rest out and I hope you do as well.
