Plickers intregration

Plickers is a great tool to use when you want to give a multiple choice, true/false or want to give a survey. Every student has their own plickers card to provide a response with. Students will rotate the card to show their best response. I use my projector and screen to show the question. Every card has a number on it that corresponds with the students names and letters (A-D) that correspond with the answers. Think of the card as a QR code.
