Description: Wizer is a platform that teachers can create engaging, interactive, online worksheets for students to complete. Wizer stands out from other worksheet generating platforms because it contains a wide variety of options for presenting material and varying types of questions. It also allows you to create worksheets that are visually appealing for students, which makes the worksheets extremely engaging.
Wizer contains a bank of worksheets created by other teachers. You can use one of those and edit it to your liking or start from scratch and create your own. There is option to add images, audio, video, and link websites. One thing I really like about Wizer is it gives you the option of creating directions for each set of questions in written or audio form. You can create questions that are open ended, multiple choice, fill in the blank, matching, and drag and drop (into tables). When you are creating the worksheet, you also upload the answers. You have the option of Wizer grading it or you can review answers and provide feedback. The premium version offers the option to differentiate your questions as well, but I only worked with the free version, which offered everything I needed.
The example linked here is a 6th grade math lesson. It provides students with opportunity to review strategies and practice independently. It contains questions in a variety of formats to address multiple learning styles. Because Wizer so customizable, it can be used for any content or grade level. It really seems like a great, interactive tool.
