Online survey or audience response tools are powerful for capturing opinions and understanding your students or colleagues better. 

To Do:

  1. Explore an online survey tool. 
  2. Experiment by creating and conducting a five-question survey of your peers about ways to use technology-enabled activities.
    • Users of the Google suite might try Google Forms, which store data in a spreadsheet stored in your drive (and can be embedded in other sites). Other survey tools like Mentimeter, Socrative, and Poll Everywhere more survey tools listed in the EdTech Sandbox.
  3. Include a link to your activity as your response for this activity.
  4. After you make your submission, save the web address to your response (found in the green confirmation box) so you can use it later for your badge submission form. 

This activity is part of the Let’s Experiment section of the Experimenter Module.

  • Menti Survey on Technology in the Classroom
    by Heather Leveille (@heathermleveille)

    I am new to Post-Secondary teaching and using interactive technology as teaching and learning tools.  Based on my colleagues advice, I decided to try Menti, and found it intuitive and quite easy to use.  I will definitely be using this in my classes going forward.

  • Experimenter Survey
    by Susan (@Susan Wilks)

    I used CHAT GPT to develop the questions for this survey, and then transferred the questions into Mentimeter.  I was unsure of how to share it, but learned how in the Lunch and Learn session.  Thanks!

  • Mentimeter seems useful
    by Adam Langridge (@alangridge)

    I’ve felt that I’m behind the times on Mentimeter for about a year now. I’ve seen it used effectively in conference presentations and in a few model lessons, but I’ve never tried it myself. I used it to create a quick quiz for this activity and it’s very user friendly. I’ll likely start using it more… »

  • Comfort Levels with New Technology
    by Catherine Studholme (@cstudholme)

    I have used Mentimeter briefly in the past, but have just used it again for the first time since my school has subscribed to it. It is now much easier to use now that I don’t have any restrictions. I will be using this more in my classrooms.

    I choose Poll Everywhere. A tool I am familiar with that quickly allows for classroom surveys. Also, presents options for ranking and work clouds – can be a positive interactive activity.

  • MS Forms for survey on phone and computer
    by Valerie McQueen (@Vmcqueen)

    I created a survey in MS Forms with my computer and phone.   The survey works well in both.  I liked the ability to set dependencies between the questions, and the suggested graphics have improved from what I’ve seen in the past. It was simple and easy to use, and the results went into excel. A more… »

    by Joanna MacDougall (@Joanna MacDougall)

    I created a survey for my colleagues about their use of technology tools in the classroom. I created the same survey using Poll Everywhere, MS Forms and Mentimeter and then tried each out on my cell phone as a participant. Each tool permits creation of the survey on a mobile device as well and are more… »

    I chose to use Poll Everywhere to engage students more through zoom, and assessed their knowledge at the end of a tutorial using this tool.
