Why Should You Use Boom Cards?

Have you heard of Boom cards? They are self-checking digital task cards that can be played on tablets, computers, and even smartphones. They range from answering single or multiple questions, filling in the blanks, and dragging and dropping the answers. They are self-checking, so students get immediate feedback, and they will be given points when they complete the cards, adding the element of playing a game.

I believe in mixing up multiple methods of teaching, and Boom cards are definitely a must-have in the classroom. The element of variety, the sense of fun and games, and let me be honest, the relative ease for me to check on participation, performance and progress are all key features for me 🙂  

Have I persuaded you already? Well, if not, here are some more reasons why I think Boom cards are amazing:

  1. They are fun and engaging.
  2. They can be accessed anywhere.
  3. Students get immediate feedback.
  4. Teachers get live progressive reports.
  5. Differentiation is easy as you can assign different cards to different students.
  6. You can save time (and make the Earth happy) by skipping the printing, copying, cutting, and laminating.
