Today's tool is called InfurseLearning. InfuseLearning tools any mobile device into a student response system. You can hear me talk about InfuseLearning on Flipped Learning Podcast #18: Quinn Barreth Flipping Without Video.
What I like:
It's a great tool because it works on any platform. This allows EVSC teachers to use our 1:1 device and give the students with devices in the shop an iPad and never miss a beat. It's very easy to use and can be set up in a matter of minutes and can be used on the fly. However, if you want to put in your class rosters and make it more structured, it does that too.
I also like the variety of questions you can ask. You can do open response, multiple choice, sort/order, ranking, and even draw response.
Here is a quick youtube video I made for my teachers. You can also find this video on my YouTube channel.
How I've used it and seen it used:
I've used it in PD sessions to get audience feedback and I've been in teachers classrooms when they've used it to collect formative assessment data.
What I'd like to see:
I think it'd be cool if I could relinquish control to a student. I just think it'd be neat if a student had a question and could ask it to the class and then have a record of the data from his or her peers' thoughts and ideas.
