  1. 1. CREATE EXCITEMENT WITH TURNINGPOINT Campbell County School District CASE STUDY LET STUDENTS CHOOSE THEIR LEARNING METHOD CHALLENGE Doni Beaupre is a sixth grade science teacher with the Campbell County Middle School in northern Kentucky, not far from Cincinnati, Ohio. She is one of 40 teachers at the school who teach about 1,300 students. Doni represents many teachers when she says she is always looking for ways to replace the time-consuming tedium involved in grading traditional pencil and paper tests with something easier and fun. Doni wants to make sure that students start from the same base of understanding so she can build on that knowledge with each unit. SOLUTION The Campbell County School district’s Technology Director strives to stay tuned to the newest technologies which can potentially enhance teaching in the District. The director purchased three class sets of 30 ResponseCards for the middle school, and then introduced the technology to teachers through an interactive workshop. “Needless to say, we were all excited, but had trouble scheduling the devices for our classes to use. I ‘borrowed’ a solution for a few weeks and my students absolutely loved it,” said Doni. “We had several fundraisers throughout the year to offset field trips and lab expenses. When I saw the benefits of the TurningPoint devices and the excitement in the kids’ eyes, I let 89 students vote to either purchase a solution for our class or use the money raised for the field trip and lab supplies. It was almost unanimous: they wanted TurningPoint!” Doni used several TurningPoint slides to check students’ understanding at the end of each unit. Because each student was assigned a numbered ResponseCard, Doni could, at the end of class, check which students had trouble understanding the material and pull them aside for remediation. She says she also uses TurningPoint to ask students five to six pre-assessment questions before starting a new teaching unit to immediately assess their understanding of fundamental concepts. Of the student response solution, “Kids love it,” Doni says. “The students work as a team to distribute the ResponseCards – I get them passed out and returned quickly. They love the competition, too.” CONCLUSION Doni concludes, “I am AMAZED with the features TurningPoint offers educators! It is amazing that I can ask a question in class and have 100 percent engagement and participation – even from the quietest student. I know immediately if the concept was reached by the ‘masses’ or if I need to re-teach.” Of quizzes, she adds, “The students enjoyed the immediate feedback and the opportunity to explain to each other the correct answer. I was also able to set up ‘team’ play and had them not only competing against each other as teams, but competing against my other classes.”
