What is a “Clicker” Anyway?
Do you know about the “Clickers” technology on Campus? This technology is facilitated through a response device or keypad. It provides an interactive learning experience for students allowing instructors to quickly gather, compile and assimilate student feedback into the current lecture. When the instructor poses a question, students reply by pressing a button on the clicker. All of the participant responses are tallied and graphically displayed on a PowerPoint slide. As a result, both presenter and student can immediately assess the conceptual understanding of a particular topic.
Not all classes require clickers at this time but soon this technology will be campus wide.For more information, search for “clickers” on the U of S website.
