Increasing Engagement

So, after working with Jim at the Global Learner PD yesterday I decided to start using the Smart Response System as more of a mid-lesson engagement activity. By using the "Anonymous" mode, I have started using the true/false and yes/no responses in order to gauge student understanding. For example, my class was focusing on proper and common nouns this week and I was able to use the SRS system to quickly mandate student engagement and check for understanding in one fell swoop. The students don’t need to be signed in, so this could work well for primary grades as well. If anyone has any other intriguing ideas for SRS engagement, please let me know!
