Interactive feedback using SMS is a pedagogical approach to provide formative feedback to student audience using SMS messages. Immediate constructive feedback offers a valuable contribution to the learning experience because it helps to identify misconceptions, create mental schemas that can be added to existing knowledge to form new skills or attitudes. The experiments consist in Lecturer presenting a question to the audience after teaching a lesson. Students reply sending a SMS message using their mobile phones to a particular website that collect only the responses and display them using a customise template. Lecturers facilitate discussion and provide constructive feedback based on the students response. © 2011 IADIS.
