Inspiration for your workshop

Scenario

Liz holds a one day workshop about starting your own business. She is normally nervous to stand in front of people during her presentations but using Mentimeter lets her engage and activate the audience in a way she feels comfortable with. Having quiz questions in her presentation creates a playful atmosphere but also lets Liz sneak in some useful facts.

How Liz plans her workshop with Mentimeter

Workshop question example 1

Liz begins with an easy Quiz question that is a little bit on the fun side to raise the energy in the room.

Workshop question example 2

Liz throws in a few more serious questions that are related to her presentation. She still uses the Quiz question type to keep the energy going.

Workshop question example 3

After the quiz, Liz sets a more serious tone to the presentation and she lets participants think about their biggest challenges. The input is vizualised in a Word Cloud to let the participants answer freely while still seeing trends and common impressions.

Inspiration for your training session

Scenario

Mia is conducting a training session for her team to let everyone know the basics of SEO (Search enginge optimization). She uses Mentimeter to make sure the team is active and to check their understanding during the session, but also to collect and document everyone's input in an effortless way.

How Mia plans her training session with Mentimeter

Training question example 1

To see at what level everyone is at, Mia starts with an Open Ended question where she can go through and discuss the answers one by one. This helps her know what areas to put the focus on during the session and establishes a sense of participation among the attendees.

Training question example 2

After a short presentation about SEO, Mia uses a Quiz question to see if everyone understands the essentials about the subject. The Quiz makes the team think fast and sparks a sense of competition in the room.

Training question example 3

At the end of the session, Mia uses Scales to let everyone evaluate how confident they feel about incorporating the SEO knowledge in their usual work. This lets her know how well the participants understand the subject and helps her plan upcoming sessions.

Analyze the results

Mia goes through the results after the session and uses them to assess if she managed to convey the concept of SEO clearly to the team. She identifies some areas that a lot of people are uncertain about, and therefore plans a second session to go more into detail on those subjects.

What our users say

"I use Mentimeter in class frequently to get students to anonymously share their opinions, often on controversial issues they may be reluctant to speak out about in class. I love it!"

Katie Herrmann, English teacher

"Students feedback have been positive, because it's fun and quite an easy way to use. Currently universities spend a lot of money on other voting systems which are expensive and frankly do not work that well."

Dr David Leonard, Junior Doctor

We love the easy-to-use aspect of Mentimeter, it enables us to give all teachers a tool to be better at formative learning.

Get inspired by Silvina Tantone, IT teacher from Argentina

"I found out about Mentimeter a couple of years ago and started to use it a lot in my classes. What for?"

  • Make visible what my students think before or after lessons; for example I make them express in a short answer what they know about a specific topic so that I get to know common previous knowledge.
  • I sometimes ask students to give few words related to what they've learnt about a specific topic. Word clouds are perfect to see if I've achieved my objectives.
  • As a democratic tool; to give voice to my students when we have to agree or to vote. Anonymity is useful in some situations.

Inspiration for your lecture

Scenario

Adam holds a university lecture in English literature. He uses Mentimeter as a formative assessment tool because it lets him quickly capture and visualize the students' responses. Since responses are anonymous, the students won't feel intimitated if they don't know the answer to a question. After the lecture, Adam can use the results to evaluate the students' understanding and plan for the upcoming lectures.

How Adam uses formative assessment and Mentimeter to improve student learning

Education question example 1

Adam uses an easy Multiple Choice question to make the students reflect about what they already know.

Education question example 2

To visualize the breadth and variation of the students' thoughts, Adam uses a Word Cloud. This sparks discussion about the theme in class.

Education question example 3

Adam uses Scales to let the students rate their own knowledge. This gives Adam an idea of what students feel confident about, and what they need extra help with.

Use feedback to improve next lecture

The results from the voting can be used as a basis for improving future lectures and for Adam to know what students need more support in throughout the course.

Inspiration for your meeting

Scenario

Nick is the product owner at a startup company. During the Friday weekly meetings, he lets the team reflect on the previous week since he believes that self-reflection is the best way of learning.

Inspiration for your conference

Scenario

Sarah is a speaker at a conference about web technology. The conference has already been going on for several hours, so she uses Mentimeter to keep the audience energized and interested in her subject. Letting the participants feel involved increases the energy among the audience and she feels that it is easier to get her point across.

How Sarah plans her presentation with Mentimeter

Workshop question example 3

Sarah uses an Open Ended question to let the audience send in their questions to her in real-time without interrupting the speech. She then selects the most interesting questions and answers them at the end of the speech.

Evaluate the speech

After the event, Sarah goes through the questions again and looks at what questions the audience asked her. This lets her know what they found clear and what could be further emphasized during her next speech.
