List of additional Polling and Student Response System or Feedback Tools

When mentoring our pre-service and in-service teachers we need to describe and model both research-based and clinically tested best practices, and demonstrate how these best practices can be applied in the real (i.e. physical) and virtual (i.e. online) classroom for both teaching and teacher training. The combination of face to face instruction in a physical setting and online learning is called blended learning. In this section of the blog we will describe how the internet can serve as a supplemental resource for instruction and the mentoring of pre-service and in-service Jewish educators. In this post we will share a list of additional polling and student response system or feedback tools.

Assumption: The teacher or mentor teacher has a interactive white board (i.e. SMART Board, Promethean, etc.), a Tablet PC (also called a Slate or Blade), a computer presenter or computer with internet access attached to an LCD projector in the classroom. It would be ideal if students or mentees had access to their own laptop computers or Ipads. Given parental and school approval, and the development of specific guidelines, smartphones can be used to enhance instruction as well.

Why would a teacher, staff developer or student want to use a web polling or student response system tool?

  • to share websites related to  specific Judaic content
  • to text message about Judaic learning
  • to obtain feedback about the curriculum
  • to make decisions
  • to assess the merit of an idea, activity, decision, etc.
  • to collect data for research
  • to share the results of a survey, questionnaire, or other assessment format
