Buzzers

    This might be a weird one but I'm wanting to make my A-level and GCSE classes more competitive. I'm looking for an app that I can use where I can verbally ask my class a question and they buzz in to answer. I'd like to be able to see who's buzzed in first and even better if it can keep a scoreboard.

    It doesn't have to be an app, a website would work as well but I'm not experienced in this. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Kahoot? You can make your own quizzes or use the ones there already.

    Yes, Kahoot is what you need, it's really good, although you need to be judicious in how frequently you use it.
    As well as giving you the stats for who answered first, who answered wrongly etc it also has a podium feature so you can generate TopThree for every quiz.
    What you cannot do, which you seem to have specified, is leave the answers open-it is essentially a multiple choice activity. However, that in itself gives plenty of scope for testing them in an interactive way.
    There also appear to be quite a few "Quiz Buzz" apps on the AppStore, so have a look.

    You might also be surprised by asking the kids-I often find out about classroom widgets from my students, either because they have been used by colleagues in other subjects, or because they use them themselves in one way or another.
