There are a lot of online survey tools out there, and many of them are free, Edudemic reports. And teachers love free tools, right? The most obvious way to use a survey tool in your classroom might be to use it for a quiz, test, or homework, but there are a lot of other uses that you probably haven’t thought of yet. So aside from testing your students, how can you use online surveys in the classroom to enhance the educational experience? … Survey your students before you start teaching a specific course or topic, and you can easily find out what they already know, what they are interested in learning more about, and the way they would most like to learn the material. By doing so, not only can you tailor your curriculum to the needs of the current class, you are also making your students feel like they are part of the learning experience.
