DescriptionJoin over 50,000 teachers, like EdTechChic, who says: "Say goodbye to your coffee can with popsicle sticks and say hello to Stick Pick!"
Pick a student at random with just a tap, swipe, or a shake -- but that’s just the beginning. Stick Pick suggests question starters for learners at different levels and also records how well students respond during classroom discussions. If a student is consistently scoring near the top or bottom, simply change the level so students aren't bored or frustrated. Depending on students' levels of English proficiency, they might be asked simple yes-or-no questions or to elaborate in longer sentences.
Stick Pick is the first app of its kind to uniquely link question stems to the cognitive or linguistic needs of each individual learner. Teachers can have multiple soup cans (classes) filled with sticks (students). During setup, teachers choose a category of question stems they wish to focus on for each learner. Questions can be based on Bloom's Taxonomy, English as a second language (ESL) skills, and degree of difficulty can be chosen for each learner.
TRACK FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT DATA
Formative assessment data is easy to track because teachers can tap a corresponding correct, incorrect, or opinion button based on the student's answer. Teachers can also rate each student's answer by selecting 0-5 on a critical thinking rubric (Bloom's) or an elaboration rubric (ESL).
BUILD EQUITY FOR ALL STUDENTS
Stick Pick is a handy tool for any teacher device and can guide classroom discussion in really helpful ways. Teachers can mark sticks so they aren't constantly calling on the same students or asking students the same questions over and over again. Students in small groups can use Stick Pick, too. During small group work, students can take turns asking one another questions based on Bloom's Taxonomy, making group work more productive and on-task.
SUPPORT COMMON CORE STANDARDS
Teachers are always looking for creative ways to integrate higher order thinking questioning strategies into their lessons. Stick Pick is an easy way to challenge learners while supporting common core standards.
