TodaysMeet empowers teachers to generate a discussion, without the interference of raised hands or other disruptions. Connect with your audience in realtime. There is a 140-character limit and is easy to use.
Encourage the room to use the live stream to make comments, ask questions, and use that feedback to tailor your presentation, sharpen your points, and address audience needs.
Mark Barnes writes, "TodaysMeet is similar to Twitter or Edmodo, as it gets students chatting….TodaysMeet is a backchannel, which helps teachers conduct online discussions, while channeling the results onto one web page or an [i]nteractive [w]hite [b]oard. Students can get to TodaysMeet with the click of a mouse, if the teacher provides a link on a classroom blog or classroom web site. Once there, students login to TodaysMeet simply by typing their name and clicking Join. No accounts or passwords are needed for teachers or students to use TodaysMeet. Ease of use is one of TodaysMeet's best features. When students and teachers want to speak, they type in a short sentence or two and click Say. Students or teachers using Twitter can join a TodaysMeet conversation, as long as they have the Twitter hashtag the teacher has set up."
