4 Four steps to success with voting systems Define a clear purpose for use What do you need to achieve? Examples: To expose and clarify students misconceptions To promote interactivity and discussion in large group case-based learning To elicit and discuss diverse points of view when there is no correct answer (e.g. ethics) To enable a mock exam with immediate feedback To provide immediate feedback on the value of the learning session Elicit honest thoughts or opinion on sensitive topics Checking understanding before proceeding with new content. Design effective questions Tips for question design: Use questions that elicit a distribution of responses so you can promote student discussion. Number all answer options to match the keypad system (i.e. do not use letters). Use questions sparingly to highlight particular points; a few questions effectively discussed are better than a lot that are glossed over Avoid PowerPoint animation in question slides as this may cause polling to close before voting has finished. Use a "correct answer" indicator where possible to visually identify the appropriate answer. Consider using a countdown timer to close polling after a set amount of time, to increase responsiveness. Be prepared Allow time for discussion when planning your session; successful voting exercises encourage thoughtful responses and active participation from the class and can take more class time than traditional lectures. Plan to be flexible enough to respond to the answers you get through voting. Be able to teach where points need clarifying. Practise your presentation in the office before using it in class If possible, check the technology in the teaching room before you use it. On the actual day of the session, allow time to set out any handsets and / or start the system or web pages. Count any handsets before and after the session Centre for Professional Learning and Development Page 3 of 16

5 Make it easy and effective Provide clear instruction to the class: Make sure everyone understands the process and how to use the technology. This may require extra time for the first couple of uses Tell your students why you re using this approach, e.g. Is it a test? Is it to stimulate discussion? Prepare students with a warm up question. Get them to check their device is working with a warm-up question. (With clickers, if they see a green light when they vote, all is OK) Allow sufficient time for students to answer questions. Some general guidelines: o Less than 30 students: seconds per question o 30 to 100 students: 30 seconds per question o More than 100 students: 1 minute per question Include the students in the discussion of the results. Ask them to discuss discrepancies among themselves in pairs (1 minute) then repoll. Introduce information or facts that should help students, and repoll before providing the correct answer. Consider a comparable follow-up question to see if students really get it. References: Centre for Education Research and Evaluation, Office of Scholarly Resources, Colombia University, n.d.

6 Ideas for using quizzes in teaching sessions to support learning and engage students Health warning As with any method, try not to over-do it! Using one or two very short interactive quizzes (1-4 questions) would be sufficient. At start of session To help everyone settle and focus on the session: Ask 2-3 quick multiple choice questions in line with current events they are likely to know about...or with seasons of the year (What is the UK's favourite Christmas food?) There lots of inspiration in a simple google search for curious facts and figures. To stimulate their curiosity in the subject: Pose 2-3 multiple choice questions about more curious aspects of the topic you are teaching To help you judge what to focus on in the session: Pose questions related to what you intended to cover in the session, to diagnose current knowledge and understanding of the topic, then use that info to select from the activities you had prepared. During the session To provide a mental break and refocus students' attention or To help students consolidate and check their understanding before moving on to the next part: Pose 2-3 quick questions that test their understanding of what has been done in first part of session To introduce the next section: Pose questions that introduce and helps them focus on what you'll cover in the next part of the session At end of session To check students progress / recap and consolidate learning: Pose 2-3 quick questions that test their progress in achieving the learning outcomes for the session, or Ask an open question such as List one thing you now understand or know now, that you didn't know at the start of the session. To get student feedback about the session: Ask one or two open questions, such as: What three things have you learned today? Identify a question you have as a result of today's session List one thing about today's topic you are still unsure of Then use that information to help you provide further guidance, or to select topics for future sessions.

11 Poll Everywhere Clickable Image Question: Defining the correct answer Poll Everywhere s clickable image question allows students to touch a region on an image to indicate their answer.
