Live polling helps tough engineering concepts sink in
Dr. Yan Tang, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, uses student interaction and constant feedback to drive learning in engineering.
To help foster discussion and understanding, she embeds Poll Everywhere polls in her PowerPoint slides for each lecture. They crop up at carefully planned intervals throughout her classes.

Conduct formative assessments
Check for understanding at any moment in class, to see how well students comprehend the new material. Then adjust instruction as needed.
Forget about forgotten clickers
No clickers needed. Students can respond using their own smartphones, tablets, laptops, and even “dumb phones” via text messaging.
Foster student engagement
Use live polling to help students interact with ideas instantly. They can ask questions, offer feedback, and brainstorm solutions in the flow of instruction, for increased content mastery.
Promote deep learning
Classroom response systems can boost student learning outcomes through active learning and promote deep learning, not just information recall.
Increase the productivity of class discussions
Second-language learners, introverts, and reluctant participants can now have equal access to class discussions. Students’ regular use of Poll Everywhere can also embolden them to speak up audibly in class.
Use your own presentation software
Poll Everywhere lives in PowerPoint, Google Slides, and Keynote. Reuse your poll slides semester after semester and automatically export grades, attendance, and participation scores through an LMS integration.
Poll Everywhere makes it easy to try active learning and it makes lectures fun for my students and for me.
We've had terrific success using Poll Everywhere! They are truly engaged in the material because they have a voice. We love Poll Everywhere and will continue to use it.
Simon Frasier University
