  • 1. The Use of i>Clickers by University Faculty in Traditional Classroom Settings Sherry Grosso Sheena McDaniel Catherine Murphy
  • 2. Overview The Terrific Tech Trainers decided to create a book to help university faculty incorporate the use of i>Clickers into their classroom. We found the UbD (Understanding by Design) approach to instructional design interesting and chose this approach to develop our book using CAST's Bookbuilder.
  • 3. Why UbD?  Analyzes target learners asking the questions: ‘Why do we need to learn this?’ ‘Why do we need to know this?’ 'Why does this matter to me?'  Moves beyond basic knowledge to understanding  Teaches learners how to use the information
  • 4. Why UbD? (cont.) Teaches learners how to apply the information, not just know it Asks the enduring question – What do we really want target learners to know and be able to do? Has the end in mind when designing the instruction – a backwards approach to instructional design Focuses on performance based assessment
  • 5. Goal The goal of the book is to entice professors to use i>Clickers in their classroom by: Addressing the benefits of use in the university classroom Motivating them to use clickers based on scholarly research Showing them appropriate/suggested uses Teaching them how to use i>clickers
  • 6. About the Book Created using CAST's Bookbuilder, the book: • Provides audio, visual aids, and text for the reader • Provides audio by 3 'coaches': Techie Tom, Dr. Hootman, and Clicker Carol, each with distinct roles in implementing instruction. • Includes scholastic references as well as links to interesting videos to supplement the text in the book. Dr. Hootman Clicker Carol Techie Tom
  • 7. What is BOOKBUILDER? Website used to create, publish, and share digital books using UDL (Universal Design Learning) Based on CAST's research related to three primary brain networks (recognition network, strategic network, and affective network) and the roles they play in understanding these differences Provides a framework to create and implement lessons with flexible goals, methods, materials, and assessments that support learning for all learners
  • 8. The Book Part I: All About Clickers This section of the book provides general information about 'Clickers': What are clickers? What are their features? What is their purpose in the classroom?
  • 9. The Book Part II: Reasons to Use Clickers Provides the reader with detailed reasons why they should use clickers and provides motivation to use them with references to scholarly research on their enhancement to student learning
  • 10. The Book Part III: How to Use i>Clickers This section provides university instructors with information and tutorials on how to order and set up i>Clickers (a specific brand of Clickers) for use in the classroom.
