When delivering a lecture to large groups, have you noticed that sometimes your students’ attention starts to wander and you start to think ‘how can I recapture their attention?’
Wouldn’t it be great if you could pose a question and get anonymous responses from everyone using their own devices, giving you an insight into your students’ understanding so you can adjust your teaching accordingly?
To use Poll Everywhere, first you need to create an account.
Free accounts can be used for up to 40 students in HE. If you have more students than that, you could ask your students to work on pairs or small groups. Alternatively, your school may have already purchased a licence for larger groups. The Digital Ed Team will be able to advise.
When you are ready, go to www.polleverywhere.com in any browser and “Sign-up”.
Next, click “Create”
Then choose “Question”...
To activate the poll, you will need to click on the “Activate” icon.
Students will then be able to vote by following the instructions on the screen.
And that is it!
Using polleverywhere.com can be a great way to engage your students and gather real-time feedback in your lessons.
Give it a go and, if you have any questions or need additional support, don’t hesitate to contact your Digital Education Team.
