  1. Plickers All-Plastic Cards

    It would be better to have a set of cards with smaller (greyed) letters at the back (facing the student) and with no letters on the face where the QR-code is.

  2. Allow for peer colaboration per card - that will create a more dynamic interactions prior to answers give;

    If we could allocate 2 registered students per card, they could work in pairs ; that is the foundation of the peer colaboration technoque and allows for a more interactive exploration step;

  4. Use QR codes for groups larger than 63 students

    If the current Plickers barcode can't support more than 63 students why not use a QR code format?

  7. Card backs

    I've already made these but they look great and are really useful. On the reverse of each card there is a square with the number of the card in large lettering. Of course each number appears four times, facing each direction, so it's not possible to tell which way it's orientated from behind. I've also colour coded each with a unique radial gradient (some nicely garish combinations). This means the students can remember their card number better and it also makes it a lot quicker to distribute cards. That and it makes the set of cards look really wonderfully colourful. …

  8. 100 cards or enough for a whole year group

    We would like to be able to print cards in the pupils planners.

    If we could assign every pupil in a year group with a unique card​ that would solve the issue of having to have a different card for every class.

    Is that technically possible?

    Many thanks

  9. Can you include a logo in the center of the card?

    Include a logo to customize the card.

  10. Alternating letters for standardized tests

    Many tests don't use just ABCD as answer choices--they alternate with FGHJ (or another combo). Having cards that have both of these printed (usually like A/F, B/G, C/H, D/J) makes it easier when taking grades.

  11. 4 per sheet

    Can you print to the size of a 1/4 sheet (4 per sheet)? A teacher in our workshop this morning suggested that we tape Plicker shapes onto the back of students' graphing calculators. Right now the ones that are 2 per card are a little too large. What an awesome idea! Thanks!

    Hi friends,

    Thanks for writing in about this idea. Many teachers already do this by changing their printer settings to print 2 pages per sheet. This will automatically layout the cards so that there are 4 per sheet (if you’re using the standard set).

    Best,

    Jenn

  12. Allow 5 answer choices instead of just 4

    It would involve redesigning the cards, but I'd love to have 5 answer choices available. Many standardized tests (like the SAT) have 5 answer choices, and it would be nice to use Plickers to invigorate our SAT prep.

    I've had a great experience so far using Plickers in my classroom. Thanks for making the app available!

  13. Plickers card design editor

    How about some sort of online editor that allows us to choose a picture to go with each orientation of the QR code, I could use it with the younger pupils as an assessment tool if I could attach smiley faces to each side, for example A=FULL SMILE, B=STRAIGHT FACE C=PUZZLED FACE D=SAD FACE, that way I could see at a glance how my pupils have felt the lesson has gone for them.

  14. More than 63 unique cards

    I'd like to use Plickers with more than 63 students/respondents at once.

    Example uses:
    - Model the use of Plickers at large PD sessions (approx. 200 respondents)
    - Large university classrooms (100+ respondents)

    Let us know in a comment how many you'd need!

  15. Two sided cards for one student.

    Allowing ABCDEFG(H). This would allow testing of simple music notation.

  16. Restore large Plicker cards

    There used to be a large (1 up) version of the Plicker cards that was available for 63 students. The file appears to have disappeared, and the Amazon version certainly doesn't have 63 codes. Given that I almost always teach more than 40 students in a lecture theatre setting this is a major constraint.

    Could this file be made available again, please?

  17. Add colour to expand number of cards

    I think number if possible cards could be expanded using colour. Yes it would require a colour printer, but I would also need around 100 possible votes. Perhaps you can set it up so you can choose between plickers Classic (your current system) and plickers expanded (with a few coulors as a factor)

  18. Smaller cards with large print

    It would be a lot easier for kindergarten students to have smaller cards to handle but with larger print to more easily recognize the letters and numbers.

  19. names!

    What about Cards with the names instead of numbers?
    Either generated with a list of names or an editable version.

  20. Mini cards! 6 per page...

    I teach PE and would love to have smaller cards since I need to use so many cards. A mini set of cards would allow me to use them all on a smaller space (instead of kids holding them up!)
