Get Task Cards on Your Tablet, Smart Phone or Computer!

I am so, so excited about the Boom! Cards app, which allows students to use task cards on any mobile device or computer! You and your students are going to love them!

You’ll love Boom because…

It’s so easy and so effective! Boom comes with a suite of teacher tools. You can assign specific decks to individual students or the whole class. You can also accesHave you heard of Boom Learning?

No printing, no cutting, no laminating – just assign decks, and your students are set to go! You can purchase decks within the app from my store or from other teacher-authors. Some decks, like this Fact and Opinion set, are even free! More authors and decks are being added every day! If you don’t see what you need, you can also make your own. The tools are fun and easy to use.

Of course, the cards themselves are fun to play. The cards are bright and appealing, and students get immediate feedback on their answers. There is also a cool gaming component built into the app. Students earn badges and awards for completing decks, which is sure to motivate even the most reluctant student. Students each have their own accounts and can log in from home as well as from school, so you can assign decks as homework or as an activity to do with a parent.

Built with input from teachers!

Boom was born with an idea I had a few years back to put task cards on iPads. Through a mutual friend, I was introduced to Eric and Mary Oemig of Omega Labs (you can read more about them at the bottom of this post). They did all the work, but I gave them plenty of suggestions along the way. This spirit of collaboration continued when we opened the platform up to our Beta group of teacher-authors. While creating their own Boom card sets, they continued to give their feedback to the development team. The result is a dynamic app that meets the needs of teachers and students.

You can join for free!

You can check out the app and even try a few decks (try this one and look for others that are 0 points). If you decide you want to use Boom with your students, you’ll need to purchase one of the other subscriptions – but don’t worry, they aren’t all that expensive, and if you grab one now, you’ll get your first year at a discount.  You can find Boom Learning on the web, or, if you are on a tablet or smartphone, at the App Store and Google Play.
