Using Student Feedback In Class To Enhance Understanding

Video >>

Dr Matthew Boyd demonstrates how he uses Interactive voting in class at the Using Space and Technology to Enhance Learning event 2nd May 2014.

Session abstract:
This session focused on the use of electronic interactive voting systems within teaching activities including some examples of how it can be used effectively to enhance a learning activity. The KeePAD devices available for use across the university campus were demonstrated with attendees taking a full part in the session. There was opportunity to discuss using the devices in your teaching and will also include the rudiments of how to get going with the software.

As part of this session we also tried out the “bring your own device” (BYOD) version of the voting system which can be used with any internet enabled smartphone/tablet via a webpage. Users also used the dedicated ResponseWare app available for both iOS and Android devices. This is not currently available within the university, however IS Service delivery are exploring the possibility of its use and feedback during this session will be gratefully received.
