Use Polleverywhere 2.0 as an audience response system on any device.  Works on laptops, tablets and smartphones with a web browser, and iOS (phones and tablets) and Android (phones and tablets) now have their own free apps which allow the user to participate without using a web browser.

Great tool to use for formative assessment activities.

Instructional Strategy: Lecture
Blooms Levels= 1-2 without activity (knowledge, comprehension)
  3-4 with activity (application, analysis)

  • Stimulate reflection
  • Challenge the imagination
  • Develop curiosity and sense of inquiry
  • Push content
  • Introduce topic/content, followed by a discussion to support the concepts covered in the lecture
  • Lecture method should include the types of experiences students will be afforded and the kinds of learning outcomes expected
  • Teacher-centered (unless activity is involved)
  • Incorporating an activity can help to enforce learning as the attention span of students may be limited
  • Lecture should not repeat the textbook but should provide additional information and examples
  • Provides the instructor the opportunity to apply the concepts from the book and course to real-world experiences
