Appsolutely! Visualise your students’ feedback with AnswerGarden

Recently heard about a new app you’d like to try in your teaching? Perhaps you’re pondering some new ways to tackle a learning and teaching challenge? Come and join us for the latest in this series of events looking at educational apps and tools, and explore how they can be aligned with a range of pedagogical approaches.

This regular, short sharing session is presented by a diverse range of educators sharing what they’ve learned through their own practice. Each session includes:

  • An overview of a particular teaching and learning challenge
  • Introduction to the app or tool
  • How it can be used in teaching
  • Q&A and discussion (if you’ve tried it yourself, come along and share your own experiences!)

Today’s app: AnswerGarden
AnswerGarden is for anyone interested in using an easy and powerful way to get brief feedback from a group. AnswerGarden can be used in many ways e.g. as an icebreaker; to establish the knowledge level of a class on a certain topic; for student interaction and participation; for online brainstorming; and classroom feedback.

In this presentation, Julie Porter-Stephens will outline how AnswerGarden can be a fun and interactive tool to increase engagement across several areas of teaching and learning.
