These collections are curated on behalf of the Center on Innovations in Learning (CIL), one of seven national content centers supported by the United States Department of Education. CIL’s mission is to (a) increase the capacity of state education agencies (SEAs) to stimulate, select, implement, and scale up learning innovations in local education agencies (LEAs) and schools to improve learning outcomes for all students; and (b) increase the capacity of regional comprehensive centers (RCCs) to provide technical assistance to SEAs relative to the Center’s scope of responsibility. The Center on Innovations in Learning is administered by the Institute for Schools and Society (ISS), in the College of Education at Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in partnership with the Academic Development Institute (ADI), Lincoln, Illinois. The Center is funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE), under the comprehensive centers program, Award # S283B120052-12A. The listing of, inclusion, or description of any resource, tool, product, or service within these collections does not signify endorsement by the Center on Innovations in Learning. The collections created do not necessarily reflect the position of the supporting agencies, and no official endorsement should be inferred. Collections and selected tools are for informational purposes only.

Instavibe allows teachers ask questions in a live setting and capture students’ opinions or responses in a few clicks. Teachers orally ask Yes or No questions, or ask for a rating or number input from students, who enter their responses via the Instavibe screen on any Internet-connected device. Students’ votes appear live on the teacher’s screen, and can be broadcast for sharing.
