How I Use It
I use it in my professional development sessions with staff. It allows for a quick interaction to check for understanding before moving on. Teachers are just like the kids. They like fun interaction too. No one just wants to sit there and be lectured to.
My Take
Working at a small alternative school, our access to modern technology is extremely limited due to lack of a budget. As a result I am always looking for alternatives that use what we have as a school and/or what students own themselves. As opposed to purchasing sets of classroom responders that are in excess of $2000, this free website for all web enabled devices, including an iOS and Android app, is a perfect fit for our school. It allows for some tactile actives for those who need it, and is more fun than just raising your hands. The privacy of silent submission allows the shy ones to be involved without direct embarrassment . It is a great tool to use
