Using Turning Point Cloud – Clickers

Clickers have been a great tool to quiz students and the software is available in all classrooms.  I have lots of clickers in my cabinet and you don’t have the students sign up if you are doing anonymous polling.  You don’t have to get a license just sign up for a free Instructor account.

Some interesting data –

  1. The class became more active and vibrant
  2. Students became less passive
  3. Absenteeism was reduced
  4. Students seemed to like the addition of clickers
  5. More students were able to share their ideas with the whole class, promoting an emphasis on explaining and listening to reasoning. Students were also better able to hear their classmates.”

We have all heard

What’s in your wallet? Advertisement – I am asking a similar question which is “What’s in your Classroom”?  Are you trying something new this semester or have you tweaked something old?  Any light bulb moments?  Is it working or have you tried something that just isn’t going right?

Take a moment and share here or send me an email and I will blog about it!  What might just be old hat to you may be a treasure to some one else, please share!
