Task Cards are Going Digital with Boom Learning!

Have you gone digital or paperless in your classroom? Are you using Google Classroom or Google Drive Apps with your students? Are you lucky enough to be in a 1 to 1 device or 1 to 1 laptop situation or do you still have to sign up to reserve the computer cart? Well, I've just started diving into a new educational app and website that you can use with your students called Boom Learning that can help you go digital more often and paperless (at least some of the time!).
My 4th grade and 5th grade task cards have gone digital with a new interactive platform called Boom Learning! Digital task cards are  especially awesome for math centers, math stations, whole group lessons, and differentiation. If you've been looking for alternatives to Google Drive or Google Classroom--you probably want to check this out! Are you going paperless in your classroom (or at least trying to reduce your copies at school)? I'll give you options for getting the pdf printable versions as well as the digital versions so that you will have the choice for how you use them in your classroom!
I have wanted to format my math task cards for digital uses for a while now, and a few weeks ago when I was ready to delve in, I happened across Boom Learning. It truly was a star-crossed kismet event because all of a sudden, I found an easy way to make digital task cards accessible for students and teachers! I've truly fallen in love with Boom Learning and have formatted quite a few of my math task cards on the Boom platform.

Best of all, Teachers Pay Teachers has given teacher authors the green light to list Boom Learning task cards in our teachers pay teachers store. {I'll tell you how that works in just a bit!}

Don’t get me wrong—I LOOOOOOOOVE paper-based task cards, especially because they allow me to easily differentiate for a wide-range of abilities during math workshop. However, I have also recognized a need for digital options that allow teachers to make task cards more engaging with the added possibility of instant feedback. And, most importantly, I am thinking about how I can use digital task cards to create better differentiation opportunities for teachers. {Think--sending different task card sets to different groups of students--yes this is possible on Boom Learning!}.

I especially LOVED creating a digital format of my "What's My Error?" error analysis task cards because the "instant feedback" feature allows students to pin point the error on the task card, input the correct multiplication answer, and get immediate feedback! Students really have to analyze the work carefully, but the instant feedback adds the FUN element to an already awesome task card set.

Now, I will be the first to admit that I have a lot to learn about going digital, but I can already see myself incorporating these self-checking task cards into stations, whole group instruction, and partner activities. I love that while I’m working with a small group or a few students who need additional instruction, my other learners can work through the digital task cards and get instant feedback! No more standing in line waiting for me to check their answer sheets!

You can find all of the task cards that are currently BOOM READY by checking out my Boom Cards category on TPT. {I highly recommend doing this because it may include some task cards that you have ALREADY purchased that I have added the FREE Boom Learning link to.}
