Live polling helps tough engineering concepts sink in
Dr. Yan Tang, associate professor of mechanical engineering at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, uses instant classroom polling to collect live feedback and drive retention in engineering courses.
"I've been looking for ways to engage students effectively and probe [their] understanding of a particular concept," said Tang. "The first time I saw Poll Everywhere, I loved it."
Tang embeds polls throughout her PowerPoint lectures. This gives her instant feedback on student comprehension.
The anonymity through Poll Everywhere gives students the ability to jump right in, even if they might not have answered a question otherwise. We need to have more time and space for classroom discussions.
