2 Polling and Student Response Systems  Elicit student participation and engagement to prompt deeper thinking about a particular question or problem.  Monitor students’ understanding of course content in real time, in order to identify and address areas of confusion and adjust the pace of the course appropriately.  Provide students with instant feedback on their comprehension to help them monitor their own understanding.  Spark discussion among students as they compare, justify, and (perhaps) modify their answers.
