Class Kick App: Appy Hour Monday Link Up

Monday, March 9, 2015 / 10 comments

I am linking up again with Tech with Jen for Be Appy Monday!


The app I wanted to blog about today is one I really wanted to test out with some kiddos/teachers last week but the snow got in our way. I'm looking forward to trying it out!



Class Kick is a really awesome and FREE app for providing instant feedback on student assignments that you can see in one location in real time! This app makes it SO easy to create assignments (blank work pages, links to videos, embed images, leave voice recordings, web content, etc.) once you create a FREE teacher account.





One of the coolest features that I can't wait to test out is that students can anonymously help each other if someone gets stuck solving a problem.

All students do to "login" is tap on the Class Kick app and enter the class code that will be provided once the teacher sets up his/her account.

When I first saw this app I could only think to use it for working out math problems. However, this image below that can be found on the Class Kick Website gave me the idea to design a lesson that would target geography (then a plethora of ideas started flowing!):

Here is what you would see on the teacher end:


I have created a lesson on Ancient Rome for some 3rd graders to test out. I have to say, it was EXTREMELY easy...woo hoo! Do you use Classkick in your classroom? If so, what do you think? I'm interested!

Be sure to link up or visit the other blogs to learn about some apps you can use in your classroom:

  1. This looks interesting. I will pass it on to Alison, our tech specialist. She's teaming with me, and perhaps we can give it a test run!
    Thanks Julie!

  3. Thanks for sharing, Julie! I love the idea of giving that instant feedback and viewing student work in real-time. Are you familiar with Formative (goformative.com)? It's just like Class Kick except for the computer! It's still in beta though but has great potential!

    1. Hi there! Unfortunately I do not have that available at this time. However, something she could do if she has access to iPads that is SUPER fun is use Google Earth and Toontastic. Students can travel to Rome and take screenshots within Google Earth. Then they can import them into Toontastic and have a cartoon move and talk all around Rome. I think I have a blog post about this...I'll look and let you know :)
