Student Response Systems
Clickers, also known as Student Response Systems, are increasingly being used in colleges and universities looking for ways to combat classroom fatigue and improve student engagement. The credit-card sized “remotes” permit students to respond wirelessly to PPT questions built into a classroom lecture; the results are instantly collected and tabulated on the instructor’s laptop and displayed in a bar chart. The format of the interaction turns an ordinary classroom into something of a game show experience, with the formerly passive students now actively engaged with the content. Instructors benefit from the real-time feedback of learning and can tailor the remainder of the class to meet true learning need
This website is designed to act as a resource for faculty interested in using clickers in their classrooms. While the technology itself is very simple and easy-to-use, you may have questions about the best way of integrating it into your class. Click on each of these links to get a broad overview of what Clickers are, how they work, and how they benefit the instructional process.
