How I Use It
I used this to really deepen students understanding of any topic I was working on. Students are encouraged to formulate their own ideas and give meaningful feedback to each other, contributing to an academic culture. Works great for a brainstorming discussion, reflection, or topic exploration.
My Take
Open ended prompts really allow for individual student thought and creativity. The data visualizations are a game changer for engaging students and holding them accountable to their peers. Assessment is also really easy and Parlay suggests feedback based on student participation.
