In general, this study aims to improve the learning quality in the mathematics education department of State University of Medan to welcoming the industrial revolution 4.0. Specifically, the aim is to develop blended learning media using the Mentimeter application to improve students' creative thinking skills. This type of research is research and development.
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.
New cohorts of students expect universities to meaningfully incorporate the use of technology-enhanced learning within their provision and they respond particularly well to an active approach to learning. One response has been for colleagues to make use of audience-response systems. The existing literature suggests that the use of these platforms allows for the adoption of active, student-driven pedagogy which creates a significantly enhanced environment in which to learn. This review explores one example of a new generation of fully online audience-response systems-Mentimeter. It outlines the range of new functionality offered by this new web-based platform which takes a significant step beyond existing card-based or clicker-based systems.
In this paper, a brief literature review has been provided which addresses the benefits of using ARS including Mentimeter in a large class. Additionally, the mechanics behind how the workings of the Mentimeter, its features and applications have been evaluated in order to offer the instructors with the insights about using Mentimeter for their own practice. Finally, a case study has been explained where Mentimeter was used for the formative assessment.
