Active Learning Using Free Polling Software

Active learning has been proven to help students analyze and apply course materials to develop a deeper understanding of the concepts being taught. Active-learning strategies include brainstorming, think-pair-share, case studies, discussions, in-class demonstrations, and many other deep-learning techniques. Kahoot, a free survey and quiz application, can be used to engage students in discussions about key events and survey them to assess their understanding of the course content. During this webinar, the facilitator discusses active-learning strategies and shares examples of engaging class discussions using Kahoot. By the end of this webinar, you will understand what is meant by the term active learning and are able to build a Kahoot survey and quiz and gather immediate results and feedback.
