Classroom Assessment Tools are generally used to quickly gauge students' comprehension. Those tools also help educators motivate students' learning spirit and draw attention to their lectures during class time. However, not many classrooms in Vietnam, especially in remote areas, are well-equipped with proper gadgets for teachers and students to take advantage of advanced educational technology. Therefore, there is a big concern about finding appropriate tools that are considered a good solution for poor schools. The authors have been seeking for those and have had much experience at integrating technology in engaging and assessing their students using the application named Plickers. The research has been carried out since February 2020, involving over 200 teachers from different regions of Vietnam, and the results show that Plickers can be widely used in almost every classroom regardless of the facilities' condition and students' levels. This presentation will discuss the efficiency, accuracy, and convenience of using Plickers. Attendees will be attracted to this practical tool via research data, know how to create a new account, design their own classes, prepare teaching material and participate in an exciting demo activity as well. The presentation will finally recommend some creative ideas of applying Plickers not only in English language classes but also in other subjects to motivate students.
