Have you ever wanted to increase student engagement in a discussion-based course? With Turning (formally TurningTechnologies) you can ask ad hoc questions with the Anywhere Polling. Pose the question verbally, type it in a document, or even write it on the whiteboard in your classroom. After you close the poll, you can share the results, mark the correct answer as you go, or provide additional insight and direction.
Anywhere Polling allows interaction and responses from all your students, whether you are teaching in person or online. It encourages student participation for those who may be uncomfortable speaking in the classroom. As with all Turning sessions, you can upload the responses to Canvas for class participation points or an assignment grade.
