After using Quia for about a week in class I asked my students what they thought about this website. I was interested in their responses for two reasons.
- I wanted to know if they acutally like using the site.
- I wanted to know if I should approach my school administrator and ask him to purchase a subscription to the website.
My original post to the students
Earlier this week we started using a website called Quia to help review for the nine weeks test during warm up time. I am very interested to see what you think about this site. Think about the three different types of activities that we have used -
- Cloze (fill in the blank)
- Rags to Riches
- Ordering (time-line).
Of these three which helps you the most and which helps you the least?
As always write in complete sentences, and please don't just write "it's cool" or "I hate it," give me some reasons why you like or dislike it.
I think that Cloze and the time-line helped me the most. I enjoyed using Quia to review.
I hate it because it is boring.quia has no fun games and there is just games where you fill in the blank and numbering stuff. The most boring one is rags to riches. I like cookies better.
I liked the Quia app because it gives us something funnier to do then just reading etex and I think it's a better way to review then just reading over the notes. I liked the Rags to Riches and Fill in the Blank game the best and those are the ones I think helped me the most.
That quia game was good me and my sister played it to help me study:)
I like the games but ETEXT has cool pictures. I dnt care too much fer the paragraph thingymajig game it doent make sense toooo me g2g byeeeeeeeeeee'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :):):):):)
I like it, I like it because it has helped me study and learn a lot more so. But the cloze has helped me a lot too!! I'm not a big fan of studying but quia makes it fun. rags to riches and the ordering thing has helped too but the cloze has helped me the most!!!!
