Use this web tool to set up a “back meeting room”. Give students a netbook/laptop and while you present information, students may add comments to the meeting room. You as a teacher can hear the internal conversations that are occurring within your students as you present. Be sure to set up ground rules before using and also leave time in the lesson to discuss comments and questions that arise. This tool can provide you with immediate assessment of student knowledge, need and interest.
