TodaysMeet: Russell Stannard

A video tutorial for TodaysMeet, an online platform which allows teachers or presenters to collect and display audience contributions or comments via a specific URL.

 

Presumably wifi access or smartphones are required, but Russell Stannard gives a number of examples of pedagogical use of this tool.

Terry Elliott:

"The MIT Media Lab has developed an open source backchannel that would be ideal for the classroom for learners who are for whatever reason unwilling to raise their hands and their voices. […] This tool is easy to set up.  You can ask questions, make comments, add links or vote up or vote down a comment. "

 

Shona Whyte:

The link has more information about this open source tool, with advice on how to use it during a talk (or preferably a series of talks).  Good connectivity and power for laptops are required, and a dedicated display recommended, taking a little of the shine off for my regular teaching contexts.

Hi Shona. At the moment I'm teaching English to primary school teachers, with no fancy technology inside the classroom. Each class is around 15 students.
I find these backchannel tools really interesting, though they are more defined to a lecture context. In Stannard's TTV about Today's Meet I quite liked his idea of groupwork class feedback, but your reservations about connectivity are echoed in my case.
Have you used these tools in your context?
Shona Whyte's comment, July 31, 2012 12:15 PM
Hi Shaz, I agree the backchannel is more suited to older learners and bigger groups. I haven't tried any yet, but am planning to have a go with Mentimeter à la rentrée, since my students mostly have smartphones.

Well, if you have a moment in a few months to report back with some feedback on your experiences or any thoughts, that would be great. Best of luck with it!

"Interact with your audience - Free of charge and without registration!"

Elisabeth Wulff Sahlén teaches English in Sweden:

"Here's something I have to share. This term I've been working with http://mentimeter.com/ which is a free online audience response system. You create your polls online and students use their cell phones to answer. Very easy to use and students got really engaged."
