Mentimeter provides opportunities to boost student learning and engagement during instruction. Looking at Robert Gagne's nine events of instruction, Mentimeter activities can enhance each event to improve student learning and performance.

  Teachers and students can have effective two-way communication.
  Learning from peers clarifies misconceptions and creates a more positive and uplifting attitude and behaviour.
  Teachers can use insights on students’ feedback, knowledge gaps, and needs to tailor and improve instruction.
  Anonymous participation encourages equal opportunity to participate, ask and voice concerns in a safe environment.
  Polls, questions or quizzes can help teachers set expectations, gain student attention, and focus on critical points during the instruction. Interactive activities can trigger class discussions, removing traditional lectures' communication barriers.
  Icebreakers stimulate a fun learning environment, creating pauses during long lectures.
  Quiz competition stirs up a highly motivating and energizing atmosphere.
