    • Reasons to use it in your classroom
      Clicker Technology
    • Add Clicker Technology to your classroom to get
      your entire class involved
      Instead of getting an answer from one student…
    • What is a Clicker?
      “the simplest remote personal response systems that resemble pared-down TV remote control units, and they work in the same way”
       http://net.educause.edu/ir/library/pdf/ELI7002.pdf
    • Student Response System
      • A small, portable receiving station is placed in the front of the class to collect and record student responses.
      http://net.educause.edu/ir/library/pdf/ELI7002.pdf
    • Responses are Recorded and Displayed
      Students enter the answer
      using their own
      personal clicker – the results of the entire
      class are displayed on the screen.
      • Improve attentiveness
      • Increase knowledge retention
      • Poll anonymously
      • Track individual responses
      • Display polling results immediately
      • Create an interactive and fun learning environment
      • Confirm audience understanding of key points immediately
      • Gather data for reporting and analysis
      Benefits of Using Clickers:
    • Don’t Just Lecture…
      Use lecture and student interaction
      to increase information retention
    • Want To Know What Student Think?
      • Clicker technology gives you a way to poll students anonymously and quickly which allows for less time working on concepts that are already understood.
      • Also allows students to compare what they know to the rest of the class
      • Interaction is fun, students are more involved
    • Lets See How a Clicker Works
      • You can give the class a question and ask for each student to use the clicker to log their answer.
      • The students “click” the corresponding button on their personal clicker which corresponds with the answer they have chosen.
      • Once all students have logged their answers, the results will show on the screen for the class to review.
      Lets give it a try…
    • Pick the Correct Answer
      How many days of the year does Las Vegas experience sunshine?
      • A. 143
      • B. 254
      • C. 362
      • D.308
      • E.259
    • Question Results
      The Clicker Records the answers of the class – this shows that 72% of the class
      got the answer correct.
