Knowledge, feedback or opinion polls with single/multiple choice or open questions are classic scenarios when using live voting systems. However, more complex scenarios are also possible. This depends on both the functionalities of the tool used and the question design.
- Mentimeter offers e.g. question types with which classification questions can be implemented well. This can be used to address cognitively higher learning goals.
- In addition, some live voting systems are also suitable for asking your students what questions they have. These can be “collected” by submission, shown to everyone and discussed together.
- In the context of the Peer Instruction method (in German) mentioned above, questions are usually designed to test conceptual understanding of a subject (they are therefore also called ConceptTests). Here, too, cognitively higher learning goals can be addressed.
