1. The original QuickQuistion Interface (QQI) Activities are undergoing an upgrade to make them more streamlined and user friendly. They still function in the same way as always. The purpose of them is to generate a random question on the given topic, mainly for use at the front of the classroom. Once the class has had an opportunity to work out the answer, the correct answer can be revealed, and discussions of mistakes can take place. This activity is particularly good for use with Mini-Whiteboards, and for Assessment for Learning, as you can quickly identify which students cannot answer the questions. These can also be used by students to practice themselves as the new versions provide a space to enter your answer and check them.
I have previously posted that I was in the process of making Mobile Friendly versions of my QQI Activities, but as I got started on this, I realised the potential for an upgrade to the whole system.
I am a maths teacher looking to share good ideas for use in the classroom, with a current interest in integrating educational research into my practice.
