Class Tech Tips: Promote Student Engagement with imakiku

imakiku turns students from passive listeners into engaged learners by leveraging mobile technology. It enables real-time voting, posting and survey capabilities via smartphones, tablets or laptops. Before class time, teachers can create questions for students with possible answers. Once class starts, students can use the participation code (or scan a QR code) to access questions. Students can submit responses during class and you can instantly see the results, choosing from different graphical representations.
