What are Feedback Frames?

Feedback Frames are simple analog tools for secret polling on up to six options per frame.  Participants record their answer by dropping a token in a range of slots that are hidden by a cover, with results later revealed as a visual graph of responses.

“The significance of voting is more tangible with a token in your hand rather than the click of a mouse. We use these in all our Social Studies and Humanities courses to develop critical thinking skills and a stronger appreciation for democratic principles. I highly recommend them for any classroom!”
