Practical Ed Tech Tip of the Week – How to Create & Conduct Image-based Polls

PingPong is a free student response system that, like many similar systems, provides you with a free and easy way to collect feedback from students in the forms of multiple choice, true/false, and short answer questions. PingPong also lets you collect sketches from students which is a great way to have students illustrate solutions to mathematics problems or to submit diagrams to answer a question. All PingPong activities are single question/ single prompt activities. The single question nature of PingPong makes it good for conducting a quick survey of your students’ knowledge of a single concept before or after a lesson. The drawing feature makes PingPong a good option for asking questions that aren’t easily answered with a typed response. PingPong offers free Android and iPad apps which make it easier than using a mouse or touch pad for students when they sketch responses to your questions.

In the short video embedded below I demonstrate the teacher and student views of the free PingPong response system.
