See Live Presentations in action in this “What’s New in MicrosoftEDU” episode from BETT 2020.  You may even see a couple of faces you know well. 😊 

Awesome Feature:

One of our favorite features is the emoji response option. I mean… who doesn’t love emojis?

We love the idea of attaching a rubric to the emojis for student responses. How would this work in the classroom? 

  • Poll or survey your students. Ask them to respond to your question with an emoji, while offering different meanings for each emoji. This is a great way to quickly see what your students know.
  • Checking for understanding throughout the presentation. 
  • Emojis can be used to indicate that students have a question. If and when students have questions they can click an emoji instead of raising their hand. 
  • You can also use emojis to engage your students in the lesson. 

Emoji Talk:

Looking for a rubric or a way to let let your students know what each emoji means? Check out this Emoji Talk rubric we created for your Live Presentations.
