Description

Join over 50,000 teachers, like EdTechChic, who says: "Say goodbye to your coffee can with popsicle sticks and say hello to Stick Pick!"

Pick a student at random with just a tap, swipe, or a shake -- but that’s just the beginning. Stick Pick suggests question starters for learners at different levels and also records how well students respond during classroom discussions. If a student is consistently scoring near the top or bottom, simply change the level so students aren't bored or frustrated. Depending on students' levels of English proficiency, they might be asked simple yes-or-no questions or to elaborate in longer sentences.
-----------------------------------------------
DIFFERENTIATE INSTRUCTION
-----------------------------------------------
Stick Pick is the first app of its kind to uniquely link question stems to the cognitive or linguistic needs of each individual learner. Teachers can have multiple soup cans (classes) filled with sticks (students). During setup, teachers choose a category of question stems they wish to focus on for each learner. Questions can be based on Bloom's Taxonomy, English as a second language (ESL) skills, and degree of difficulty can be chosen for each learner.
-----------------------------------------------
TRACK FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT DATA
-----------------------------------------------
Formative assessment data is easy to track because teachers can tap a corresponding correct, incorrect, or opinion button based on the student's answer. Teachers can also rate each student's answer by selecting 0-5 on a critical thinking rubric (Bloom's) or an elaboration rubric (ESL).
-----------------------------------------------
BUILD EQUITY FOR ALL STUDENTS
-----------------------------------------------
Stick Pick is a handy tool for any teacher device and can guide classroom discussion in really helpful ways. Teachers can mark sticks so they aren't constantly calling on the same students or asking students the same questions over and over again. Students in small groups can use Stick Pick, too. During small group work, students can take turns asking one another questions based on Bloom's Taxonomy, making group work more productive and on-task.
-----------------------------------------------
IMPROVE PARENT-SCHOOL COMMUNICATION
-----------------------------------------------
Student progress is recorded and averaged automatically within the app and can be shared in lots of convenient ways.
-----------------------------------------------
SUPPORT COMMON CORE STANDARDS
-----------------------------------------------
Teachers are always looking for creative ways to integrate higher order thinking questioning strategies into their lessons. Stick Pick is an easy way to challenge learners while supporting common core standards.
-----------------------------------------------

Customer Reviews

In response to WheelerFly's one star rating

Have you emailed the developer before giving Stick Pick a one star rating? Buzz, the developer, is very quick at responding to user feedback. If you delete it, and then reinstall, it will work. Any students you added prior to the update will need to be added again. This update was necessary due to Dropbox retiring a back-end service we depended on for sync. We had to move sync to another provider, and the databases don't integrate. So, that's the story. Two suggestions: first, send to yourself your students' previous scores if you want to save those. Second, save yourself some time and import your roster from a CSV file via Dropbox.

Was such a good app!

Man I've used this app for years but now it kicks me out of the app whenever I try to use it. I sure do hope they fix it soon then I'll gladly change my review.

Used to be brilliant, but...

It doesn't save classes or allow you add students. Without those two things, it's useless. That's too bad because it was great once.
