'Technology without the Tech: Plickers' was led by Nicky Phillips from St James School
Plickers is a powerfully simple tool that lets teachers collect real-time formative assessment data without the need for stu-dent devices. Come and learn how to use Plickers in your classroom! "The kids love it. I thought of it as a good data-collection tool, but my students think it's a game."
