Presentation on Clickers in the Classroom with Turning Technologies

Audience Response Systems (Clickers) offer a powerful way to increasing student engagement and improve learning. While clickers have great applicability in larger classes, they can be used in classes of any size. In this interactive webinar, we’ll explore tips and ideas for incorporating clickers into your particular class. We will review the setup of the required software and go over the logistics for reserving and deploying clickers in your classroom. We’ll show research results on the most effective use of clickers, and discuss common challenges. In particular, we’ll focus on the attributes of “great” clicker questions, discuss example questions, and share ideas on facilitating effective wrap-up discussions once all the votes are in.
