Classroom and Presentation Tips
Ever wish you could read your students' minds while you're giving a lesson?
You'd have an amazing ability to adjust to your classroom's needs and emotions. That's the backchannel.
And that's where TodaysMeet comes in. TodaysMeet gives you an isolated room where you can see only what you need to see. Your audience doesn't need to worry about public real-time updates in forums like Twitter, or speaking aloud if they're embarrassed or don't want to interrupt.
TodaysMeet is a good way to have a quick convo in a relatively quiet place, while real-time lessons are going on and after class as a resource for discussion between students who may have never otherwise sought help from one another. Students can even remain anonymous while talking in the backchannel.
Why waste precious characters @replying everyone when you can just sit in the same room and listen to each other?
