infuselearning | Empowering The BYOD REVOLUTION | Education Technology @ NWR7 | Scoop.it

This is a web based response system called Infuse Learning.  This tool is another option similar to  http://menitmeter.comhttp://todaysmeet.com andhttp://socrative.com .  All are great for engagement and assessment.   The school districts that are implementing BYOD/BYOT initiatives should add this FREE application to their tool box for students and their devices.

 

A few of the highlights are:

1. No sign up needed for students or you can create your now classes.

2. Spontaneous responses for short answer, numeric, and Likert Scale questions.

3. There is a drawing function for iPad, iPhone, and Android devices and the drawing function works on a PC as well.
