Clickers - October 2012

175

Published on

Clickers are also known as Audience Response systems and are used in a variety of ways, with aims such as increasing engagement, allowing students to answer questions in class anonymously, to check understanding of concepts, or to start group discussions.

In this session we look at examples of the use of Clickers, explore reported benefits and challenges related to some of their uses, and ensure that you know how you could get started using these systems (for example Optivote and TurningPoint) at Edge Hill University.

  3. 3. Examples of Names• 26 terms used in the literature (Kay, 2008), most commonly: – Audience Response Systems – Personal Response Systems – Electronic Voting Systems – Student Response Systems – Classroom Communication Systems – Classroom Response Systems – Electronic Response Systems – Clickers
  4. 4. Examples of Uses – 1. Peer Instruction• Issues with understanding of concepts in Physics class.• Video of Peer Instruction in action• Pre-lecture reading, ConcepTests, Discussions
  5. 5. Examples of Uses – 2. Attention• Edge Hill Inductions • Most simple use • Ask questions throughout the lecture and give correct answer • Aim is to try to maintain attention
  6. 6. Effects of use in HE• Kay and LeSage (2009) literature review• Classroom (attendance, attention, anonymity)• Learning (interaction and discussion, contingent teaching, learning performance and quality)• Assessment (feedback, formative, compare)
  7. 7. Challenges to use in HE• Technology (remembering kit, systems failing)• Teacher-based (responding, coverage, question writing)• Student-based (new method, discussions, summative assessment)
  8. 8. Different Tools• Handsets – Optivote, TurningPoint, ActivExpression at EHU – Contact LTDsupport@edgehill.ac.uk to book• Mobile Phones – TurningPoint ResponseWare – Socrative, ActivEngage – Building block available for Blackboard mobile
  9. 9. Also Hands On– Setting up slides for TurningPoint and Optivote.– eShare guides – Optivote, TurningPoint
  1. A particular slide catching your eye?

    Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later.
