Empower Students to Express Their Ideas

Whether the student whose hand is always raised or the one who hates to be the centre of attention, every learner has thoughts to express, questions to raise and valuable contributions to make. ActivExpression is a versatile student response system with full-sentence, equation and character text capabilities, offering students a range of response types as varied as their insights and opinions.

ActivExpression is an intuitive learner response system designed to promote full-class participation and engagement throughout lessons while encouraging ongoing, real-time assessment of student progress. Use ActivExpression during whole-class instruction to gauge students’ prior knowledge, assess their understanding as the lesson progresses or gain their insights into the topic at hand. Alternately, have students work and learn at their own pace and gather detailed data on their progress using ActivExpression’s self-paced mode.

The Express Poll Wonderwheel interface “floats” over most computer applications, including web browsers, Microsoft® Word® and Microsoft® Excel®, enabling teachers to use ActivExpression spontaneously, minimising lesson preparation time and maximising precious classroom time. Easily export assessment results to Microsoft® Excel to save, review and monitor student comprehension trends over time.

With ActivExpression, transform the classroom into an interactive learning environment where the potential for achievement rests in the palm of every student’s hand.
