Steps for Students

If you play this game with cards, follow these steps: 

  1. Your teacher will give you a set of Plickers cards. Each card has a unique code on it, like a barcode or QR code. 
  2. Before the game begins, hold up your Plickers card so that your teacher can see the code on it. This will help them match your card to your name in the Plickers system. 
  3. During the game, your teacher will ask you a question, and you’ll need to choose an answer from the options given. 
  4. Hold up your Plickers card with the code facing up, and rotate it until the letter of your chosen answer is at the top. 
  5. Your teacher will then scan the room with their phone or tablet’s camera, and the Plickers system will record your answer. 
  6. Your teacher will then display the results of the question, so you can see how well you and your classmates did. 
  7. Repeat steps 3-6 for each question in the game. 
  8. And that’s it! Just remember to hold up your Plickers card with the code facing up and rotate it to select your answer.
