Microsoft Interactive Classroom helps interaction and collaboration between educators and students by enabling the creation of classroom polls using PowerPoint, and sharing content with students using OneNote.
With Microsoft Interactive Classroom add-in, students participate like never before while staying up-to-speed on instructor notes. It gives educators the power to add in-class polling and to share lessons over a wireless network. If a teacher updates a presentation, students capture the notes in real-time via Microsoft OneNote.
Educators can insert a multiple choice, yes/no, or true/false polling questions to lessons using PowerPoint. Students who have laptops running Microsoft Windows and OneNote receive the polling questions and teacher annotations in real-time within their OneNote Notebook.
In addition, students can add their own notes to the slides using the features provided in OneNote. They can also respond in real-time to the questions during the lesson.
With Microsoft Interactive Classroom, students without laptops can participate in polls using hardware clickers. This gives educators real time feedback on how well their students are grasping their lessons.
