    • CLICKING WITH STUDENTS
    • Ask student opinion-related questions.  Space questions throughout your  presentation. Encourage active discussion & questions. Just  don’t rely on the clickers! Try some assessment of learning or  evaluative questions at the end.  Pre- and post-testing On the question slides: indicate correct  answers and show results of class.
    • Promotes active learning   P-D-P: Poll-Discussion-Poll format Encourages ALL students to participate  Adapt instruction based on feedback   Explain a concept more thoroughly  Promote discussion  Move on to the next topic Student feedback: anonymous or indentified  Assessment: download results   Student Learning or Librarian Assessment
    • Getting your clickers back!  Tech issues: installation of software,  compatibility w/ PC vs. Mac, Office 2003 vs. Office 2007 Coming up with appropriate questions: just don’t  regurgitate content! Time spent in class   Especially for assessment purposes “Death by PowerPoint”!!! 
    • Demonstration:   Do a search in the databases for articles about NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND and TESTING. Then do a new search for NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND and TESTING and BUSH.  The new search will give you: ▪ The same results ▪ More results ▪ Fewer results
    • Conceptual:   Indentify the key words in the following statement: HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETES SHOULD BE TESTED FOR DRUGS. ▪ Athletes, drugs, testing ▪ Athletes, drugs ▪ Athletes ▪ Athletes, high school, drugs, testing
    • Recall:   You would use the Library’s online journals link to: ▪ Get the full-text of articles ▪ Search the catalog for books ▪ Access the electronic reserves
