When used effectively, student response systems (SRS) such as clickers offer a powerful tool to promote student learning and engagement. This workshop will introduce some popular SRS and demonstrate how they can be used to provide real-time assessment, promote collaborative learning, encourage discussion, keep students attentive and accountable, solicit student feedback and questions, and provide an anonymous method for students to venture guesses on challenging material or express opinions on divisive subjects. SRS add a fun dynamic that enhances the learning experience and promotes efficient use of class time.
The discussion will include key considerations such as whether to use electronic devices or low-tech options such as placards, different methods of assessment, and an introduction to SRS options such as iClicker, Top Hat, and Kahoot.
Throughout the workshop, participants will evaluate the demonstrated SRS implementation methods for potential application in their own classroom.
