My Favorite Things
I have written before about my favorite apps to use in class - read about that here. Explain Everything and Plickers serve such different purposes that I can't choose just one as my favorite. They work well in tandem. Although, next year when my freshmen have their own Surface tablet/PC, I may move away from using Plickers. We'll see.
On a completely different note, cleaning my whiteboards before I leave work on Friday is my favorite organizational tip. It keeps the boards cleaner throughout the week, and it helps me feel ready to start the week when I arrive Monday morning. In fact, last week I was out of the building Thursday afternoon and Friday, and my students noticed how messy my boards were. 5 minutes or less, and a less stressful Monday? Yes, please.
