Abstract


The use of the Audience Response System in English teaching increases students’ interests and participations. Mentimeter is one of the listener response systems that allows us to prepare course evaluation activities. Mentimeter allows students to convey their opinions via phones, tablets, laptops or personal computers. In this study, it is aimed to get the opinions of 10th grade students about the use of Mentimeter in English class. As a result of the research, it is found that the course taught with Mentimeter has positive effects on the students. It has been concluded that it increases students' participations in the lesson, makes them enjoy the lesson, motivates them and helps them to focus. "Mentimeter" creates a competitive environment, allowing students to have a pleasant time and to correct their mistakes by receiving feedback.

 

Dinleyici Yanıt Sisteminin İngilizce öğretiminde kullanımı öğrenci ilgi ve katılımını arttırmaktadır. Mentimeter derse ilişkin değerlendirme etkinlikleri hazırlamamıza olanak sağlayan dinleyici yanıt sistemlerinden birisidir. Mentimeter öğrencilerin telefon, tablet, dizüstü bilgisayar veya kişisel bilgisayar aracılığıyla görüşlerini iletmesine olanak tanımaktadır. Bu çalışmada İngilizce dersinde Mentimeter kullanılmasına ilişkin 10. sınıf öğrencilerinin görüşlerinin alınması amaçlanmıştır. Araştırmanın sonucunda “Mentimeter’’ ile işlenen dersin öğrencilerin üzerinde olumlu etkileri olduğu görülmüştür. Öğrencilerin derse katılımını arttırdığı, derstten keyif almalarını sağladığı, motive ettiği, dikkatini toplamalarına yardımcı olduğu sonucuna ulaşılmıştır. Mentimeter rekabet ortamı oluşturarak öğrencilerin keyifli zaman geçirmelerine, geri dönüt alarak hatalarını düzeltmelerine olanak sağlamıştır.
