QUIZZIZ ADDS A LIVE WHITEBOARD!
Quizziz has added a live whiteboard, previously known as “Scribble Tool”, to all versions including basic! The live whiteboard is different from a drawing question. It’s just a whiteboard that could be popped up spontaneously whenever it is needed, even mid-lesson. You don’t have to plan for it in any way. Of course, you will already know that you plan to use it at a certain time, but you don’t have to prepare the whiteboard in advance. You just pop it up when needed. The whiteboard will work in one of two places, either during an instructor-paced quiz, or a lesson to run the live dashboard.
I typically use Quizziz in classic mode, which lets my students move at their own rate, this means I wouldn’t be able to use the live whiteboard. However, if less than 90% of my students got the answer correct, I can use the live whiteboard, while in instructor-paced mode, so that we can discuss the answers.
So at any point, while in the instructor-paced mode, look for the green button at the bottom of the screen to open up the live whiteboard. You can draw, or your students can, it’s your choice who is doing the drawing.
You can also choose if you’d like to use a background. The background needs to be prepared in advance and saved to your computer so it is ready to be uploaded. For example, if you have a coordinate plane, a map, or a diagram that you’d like to use, just save it to your computer, click change background, and pop it in.
The teacher is able to do drawings that the students will see, or the students can do the drawings if given the option. The drawings will appear on the right, similar to Nearpod, Pear Deck, or the different whiteboard tools that are out there. It’s nice that it’s built into this platform where we’re doing other stuff already, right?
The lessons have slides, kind of like a PowerPoint or Google Slides which are built in. The same green at the bottom opens up the drawing plane or drawing screen.
Draw Type Questions
I’m 99.9% sure that this is in the paid version. Drawing answers is great for helping students with memory and recall.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on the Quizziz updates!
