Do you love task cards but hate the time and money you spend printing and cutting?  Do you ever wish you could assess your students but not spend so much time grading?  Well then...you will LOVE this new format!  


Why did I want make digital task cards?

Maybe your school limits your paper use.  Maybe you have 150 students.  I know I normally do!  I want to assess them all, and I want to do it often, but I can't keep up with the grading and still do everything else I need to do.  These cards are amazing, because they require no paper and they check themselves.  Even better...students get immediate feedback.  And best of all...my cards are modeled after the same task cards from my store that many of you already love to use!

So, why are these so great?  

1.  We've already talked about the paper restrictions.  If you are restricted on printing, these are handy, because they require no printing.  You can use them on smartphones, tablets, computers, or even put it on the board for whole-class play.

2.  You always have that one student who finishes first.  Task cards are great, because they are a fun way to review or enrich without giving the student busywork.  As more decks of cards get added, you can add to your library and students will have fun choosing activities that suit their needs.

3.  You don't have to grade these!  They are self-checking and you can get performance reports to see just how your students are doing.  Even better:  students know just how they are doing!  Imagine using this for a quiz review!  You could even assign a deck as homework instead of printing off a study guide.  

4.  You will save prep time.  There is no prep here.  You can access decks from the Boom Learning website or the Boom Learning app stores at Google Play or Apple and you are set to go!  

5.  It's fun!  Kids love anything new and different, and working on a computer or tablet is just fun!  It's interactive, nice to look at, and different from the standard paper and pencil.  Plus, kids can earn badges for doing well, making it feel like they are playing a game rather than learning.

  1. I think task cards are great to use for many reasons. Your ideas of saving paper and using them as a 'When I am finished activity is awesome! The fact that are digital makes them even better...I am still trying to figure out how to create a BOOM resource!!! Have not had the time to discover how yet!!

    1. Go into the studio, and there is a demo deck that explains everything. It's really easy to use, and once you get the hang of it, they don't take long. My goal is one deck a week. :)
