1. Which of the two tools do you think would be most useful to use with your students? Why?
I think Quizlet will be better for those highly motivated and self regulated language learners, they will find it really useful to memorize the jargon, link vocabulary to its explanations. However I find it less communicative and engaging.
As a student, I did enjoy my experience with Socrative. I have used some higher order thinking skills – to compare and contrast information of different people- though with not very satisfactory results. I still consider it could be a brilliant ice breaking activity in class – as for students who have the opportunity to see each other in the classroom, they may take an interest to learn some information about their peers, which makes the language activities authentic and meaningful.
