  • 5. Do kids like it? This survey was done via <http://www.surveymonkey.com> with my Applied Math 40S, Physics  30S, and Physics 40S classes on Jan 20,21st, 2009. 1. The use of this type of technology has helped me improve my mark in Mr. Bennet's class 5
  • 6. 2. How many class podcasts did you listen to this semester?  6
  • 7. 3. What technology did you find the most useful? Please comment on why it was useful. .The podcasts and the notes on the website because I am an athlete and my team was gone many fridays and on  some occasions even earlier in the week. I was able to access the days notes from any location that there was  internet access. Wed, 1/21/09 9:51 AM   Recorded lessons, very useful if you miss a class, or did not getenough time to finish writing notes. Wed, 1/21/09 9:50  AM  .i think getting the notes off the website was most useful especially when i listened to the podcast to Tue, 1/20/09 2:59 PM  The online solutions(laptops) because i can see where i went wrong on my questions and i can look through them at  my own pace. Tue, 1/20/09 2:56 PM  Clicker Tests, because they tested your knowledge on an everyday basis and got you thinking. Tue, 1/20/09 2:55  PM   Clicker Quizzes, mainly because they were more interactive and it made it easier to may attention. Tue, 1/20/09  2:54 PM  7
  • 8. 4. What other technology would you like to see being used in a classroom? Explain.  2.clicker tests ... they were fun and helped out Wed, 1/21/09 9:57 AM   3.I think that using more interactive technology really increases the understanding of many things. Like the clicker  tests. It would be useful if there was a little quiz at the start of the class about the previous days work. Or at the  begginning or end of the week about that weeks lessions so that students know where their understanding level is at.  Wed, 1/21/09 9:51 AM   robat personal tutor Tue, 1/20/09 3:05 PM   8
