By having students vote on a poll with their cell phones,as the results roll in they receive visual confirmation that their opinions areshared by others in the class.The “Scales of Agreement” strategy works well in the classroom as a method toopen up a classroom debate or to close a lesson. Instead of having studentsrespond to a question that has a correct answer, create the following question:Question: How would you describe your perspective on this concept/topic/issue?A: Completely AgreeB: Somewhat AgreeC: Somewhat DisagreeD: Completely Disagree
Mobile Instructional Strategies for Class RoomStrategy #2: Scales of UnderstandingThis questioning strategy is similar to the method described above.However, this time change the language in the question to probe not for studentagreement, but understanding.Question: How well do you understand the concept/topic/issue?A: Completely UnderstandB: Somewhat UnderstandC: Do Not Clearly UnderstandD: Completely Do Not Understand
