Student response systems are a great way to get instant feedback to use as formative assessments during a lesson. These response systems can be used with students of any age, but work better with an older group of students who have access to cell phones, but these can be modified to be used with computers or iPads.
Socrative is great for instant scoring on quizes. Kahoot! is a fun interactive game like environment where students compete to answer the quickest. Both are great tools!
