    • Research Proposal Presentation Karin Blackwood EDU 710 Dr. Helen Hawley3/6/2012 Karin Blackwood, ID# 427003 1
    • The Use of Clickers in aHigh School Biology Class3/6/2012 Karin Blackwood, ID# 4270003 2
    • Statement of the Problem• Using a device, such as a handheld clicker, might level the playing field for the language learner and the reluctant learner; while capturing the attention of the tired and disengaged student.• Educators find themselves in a very difficult time to teach, and teach well. – Language issues exist for many students – Students don’t get to touch technology even though it is all around them – Students are difficult to engage (over-stimulation, family issues, too many activities)3/6/2012 Karin Blackwood, ID# 427003 3
    • Background & Need• Response Systems have been around since the 1960s but entered the educational arena in the 80s• Clickers today transmit a student’s response & can instantly see it being evaluated• It is a means of active learning while allowing the teacher to obtain & analyze student learning immediately• Primarily used at the college level…most research done at the college level• Need to evaluate the value of the clicker for stu- dent review sessions & its impact on summative assessment data at the high school level3/6/2012 Karin Blackwood, ID# 427003 4
    • Proposed Methodology• Research Method – Approach: Mixed-Method – sampling strategy: • 58 biology students will be participating from this teacher-researcher’s 3rd & 4th period classes – Timeframe: 1 school year • The fall semester of assessment scores will be the baseline data; overall GPAs will be collected as well • The spring semester of assessment scores will be collected after using the clickers for the review sessions; overall GPAs will be collected.3/6/2012 Karin Blackwood, ID# 427003 5
    • Methodology continued…• Scope & location of research – This study takes place at a large high school in CA where enrollment if just over 2000 students • All students at this site must take biology • Classes are heterogeneous in age, ethnicity, and intellect – Triangulation of data? YES!! • The overall GPAs of the individual participants will be compared between the fall & spring semesters • Students will also be compared by grade level (9, 10, 11, & 12) • Students will take a perception survey3/6/2012 Karin Blackwood, ID# 427003 6
    • Issues & Limitations• Ethical – Privacy: The students will remain anonymous and will be identified by student number, not name – Confidentiality: The data will be shared with the teacher-researchers content team and also with NVUSD, but the students will remain nameless3/6/2012 Karin Blackwood, ID# 427003 7
    • Issues & Limitations continued…• Limitations – Study limited to the accessibility of a class set of clickers – Steep learning curve for first time users – Most questions target factual questions that are lower down on Bloom’s taxonomy – Technology issues – Cheating – Cost & storage3/6/2012 Karin Blackwood, ID# 427003 8
