There are always more questions than those that can be answered with a simple yes or no, and students generally have much more to say than just A, B or C. Sometimes, the answer is E=MC2, Robert Frost, 12,426, or LOL. With ActivExpression, no message is too complex to communicate.
ActivExpression features full text capability, enabling numeric, sentence-based, symbolic, and, of course, yes, no, A-, B- and C-based responses. It’s an easy-to-use tool for polling and pre-planned participatory exercises alike. It works on the fly, ready to query the class at any time. And it offers teachers the opportunity to instantly gauge student comprehension and adjust lesson plans based on needs.
Self-Paced Learning functionality encourages students to work at their own pace and level. But ActivExpression’s most innovative feature is its ability to help all students find confidence – and their voices. Here in the ActivClassroom, participation is no longer a panic-inducing proposition. Everyone answers (anonymously, if necessary), and everyone is heard.
