Do I need a BOOM Membership?
Yes! To assign BOOM Cards you will need a membership. There are 4 membership tiers. One is free and three are paid. You can read about the different levels of membership at the BOOM Learning website: https://wow.boomlearning.com/.
Can I Use Purchased BOOM Decks with the Free Membership?
Yes! However, they can only be used as FastPlay. Decks that are played through FastPlay will not generate progress reports. These are great for practice.
Assigning FastPlay Cards
On the menu bar click “library.” This will take you to your library of any decks you have purchased or created.
Choose the deck you would like to assign to your students.
Click on the “action” button to get a drop down menu.
On this menu click “Fast Pin.”
You will get this pop up. Click “Generate Pin.”
This is the information you will share with your students so they can play the BOOM Deck. Your students will enter the pin to play.
Remember these will not generate student reports!
Assigning Cards with A Paid Membership
Free memberships are great, but getting the progress reports is very helpful! To set your students up with BOOM Decks follow these steps.
Click “Classes” on the menu bar at the top of the website.
Create your classroom by adding a “new classroom” on the left side menu.
Now that you have your class you will need to add your students. Click add student. Enter your student’s username and create a password.
You can assign a BOOM Deck to the entire class or individual students. To assign the deck to the entire class click on assignments above the student names. Then choose the deck to assign.
To assign individual decks click on the arrow next to the student. On the drop down menu click assign, and you can assign the deck you would like.
When your students are ready to play they will visit the BOOM Learning website and sign in.
Your students will love the fun and interactive play of BOOM Cards. You will love that is great for distance learning, no prep, and self grading!
