Mentimeter Review for Teachers Mentimeter helps to minimize the "death by PowerPoint" conundrum. The ability to create presentations where students ask and vote on questions, and take polls, allows teachers to involve their audience in ways that a traditional presentation can't. Letting students submit questions as you teach, using the Upvote feature as a gauge, teachers can use class time more effectively by addressing the needs of the many while still being aware of the needs of the few -- or even the one. The flexibility of the question types along with the ability to have students respond, see responses, and ask questions in real time, enables students to make relevant connections during a lesson rather than wait until after teachers present the information to be assessed. Student creation offers even more possibilities, allowing students to become teachers by creating interactive presentations for small groups or whole classes and bringing authenticity to classroom content.
