Mentimeter as a learning technology

What is Mentimeter? 

Mentimeter is a so called “Student Response”-system. It can be used to activate the students during lectures, and other study activities by integrating quizzes, polls, and Q&A´s. Mentimeter has an intuitive and easily accessible interface; it should be relatively easy to use without prior introduction. 

Pedagogical and didactic advantages 

Metimeter provides the students with the opportunity to raise a question anonymously during a lecture without interrupting the lecturer. This way Mentimeter gives the opportunity to activate even shy or introvert students who normally would not participate in the lecture. With Mentimeter you can test the students´ understanding of the subject, collect feedback, and evaluate. Mentimeter can also foster dialogue and group discussions by creating wordclouds. Students can answer questions or assignments via their preferred device. Furthermore, the educator can cut out pieces of the student responses for later discussions or analysis.
