AnswerGarden is a new minimalistic feedback tool. Use it for real-time audience participation, online brainstorming and classroom feedback.
It’s very quick to create a question, and then students can visit a simple URL to answer. Create your question and then generate your answer board. Share the URL to the board with the class. Then they will type in this answer. Answers appear in a word cloud; the more times a word is submitted, the larger the word will appear.
There are a few different settings to explore on the create page; play around with the options to see what will suit your outcome.
You can use AnswerGarden for an ice-breaker activity and to extract prior learning or experiences. For example, this question was used to start a faculty PD workshop on Authentic Assessment. (Visit this URL and enter your answer.)
You could also poll the class, such as this example about work placements.
