It's easy to input a series of multiple choice or true-false questions into the app's software. Each staff mem- ber downloads the app onto their cellphone and comes up with a cre- ative screenname. We project the questions and screen names — there's a lot of laughter as we try to figure out who's who — onto a wall in the meeting room. The questions typically pertain to new policies or topics covered during the meeting, and staff use their cellphones to sub- mit answers in real time. The app tracks the answers, awards points for correct responses and displays a leaderboard as staff cheer and boo as the point totals change. Winning staff members receive gift cards to a local restaurant. By the end of the meeting, everyone is engaged in the discussion about the topics we quizzed them about.
