Classroom Response Systems

Challenge your students and let them use their smartphone. Test their knowledge by asking multiple-choice questions, collect their digital questions or play a quiz by using one of the world’s leading classroom response systems!

Interactive learning through questioning

The familiar response from a group of students when being asked a question, is often a long silence. Teaching in front of a larger classroom, hardly makes it impossible to properly interact with students. Some teachers use clickers, an app, or a different system to get instant digital response.

Yet, to facilitate polling simply via cell phone is a new system to most teachers and students. With Sendsteps, teachers easily add a voting question to the PowerPoint slide deck, and the entire classroom can submit answers in just a second; the slide shows the instant results.

Classroom moments for interaction

The most obvious use of a classroom response system is to ask questions to test the knowledge present in a classroom. To help students adopting a new digital method, it helps to not only use the tool for a regular polling session; At the start of teaching a new subject, you can also use the tool to collect expectations. Simply ask: “What do you expect to learn this semester?”. Or use it as an evaluation method afterwards.

Finally, the wordcloud has proven to be a fun interactive element to let students give a one-word summary about what they’ve just learned or what they expect from a course.

A platform for open reactions

Next to voting, you can also use Sendsteps as an open floor to the classroom. Everyone can send in open content, like ideas during a brainstorm, comments on a pitch or questions to a presenter.

No need to worry about what people might send in. Through your online dashboard you’re able to monitor every incoming response. You might even point out someone in the classroom to execute this task. As such you also create a sense of ownership of the system, plus the class will be more serious in their contributions.

Flexible on the spot

Last minute changes, a sudden turn in your class discussions. No worries, as the PowerPoint tool allows easy changes or additions in your presentation. Imagine a comment from a student that you like to turn into a vote? Within a minute the vote has been added to your presentation. Step away from classic Q&A’s and use Sendsteps during a debate, a brainstorm or a pitch. Find creative ways with interactive learning! We’re here to think along and to help you getting the most out of Sendsteps.

Formulating clever questions

Get as many replies as possible by taking proper care of formulating your questions. Add the word “I” to quickly trigger your audience, leave no space for multiple interpretations of statements, keep formulations short and simple. And finally, don’t over ask your audience; a lot of that relates to the amount of time you spend on dealing with the input. The more you neglect responses, the less inviting it is for the class to reply again.
