Engaging students on their devices with Mentimeter
This technology review shares an interesting insight into snapshot cases of the online student voting tool Mentimeter (MM) used with students in the Teacher Education Department. The use of MM in both lectures and seminars is presented along with three illustrative screenshots. Advantages and disadvantages of MM are discussed, with reference to recent literature about student engagement. The authors ideas for future plans with the tool are shared, with the hope of inspiring other HE colleagues to trial or further integrate MM into lectures and seminars, in order to promote student engagement and enhance the teaching and learning experience for all.
