Using Boom Cards in the Secondary Classroom
Boom Cards certainly experienced a “Boom” over the last year. This self-grading, paperless activities became a lifesaver for many teachers during distance learning.
They are virtual task cards and activities that are hosted on the Boom Learning platform. You can create your own decks or buy some from the huge variety available.
Why use Boom Cards?
One of the main reasons why I use Boom Cards is that they are self-grading. In a world of neverending mountains of assignments waiting to be graded, anything that is self-grading is a win in my book. You can also easily track each student’s progress on the teacher platform.
Now that we are back to face-to-face teaching, I still assign decks to my students to complete at home in their own time. You can even link your Boom Classes to Google Classroom, which makes it even easier to assign decks.
When can you use Boom Cards?
Decks of cards can be used in so many ways. I usually assign decks for review before an assessment. As they are self-grading, students get immediate feedback and can see which areas they need to focus on when they study for the test or exam.
