Tool 6 - Using Web Tools to Promote Discussion in and out of the Classroom
I played around with Today's meet and I can really see how this could be helpful in the classroom. A teacher could let students ask questions that might pop into their heads while he/she is lecturing. As the questions pop up on the screen, the teacher could answer them and continue with the lecture. It would also be a great way to check for understanding based on the type of responses you are getting from the students.
Wow. What a slick thing! This is just like using the expressions or votes on the activeboard, but the students could use their own cell phones. What fun and VERY interactive!!!
