Clickers in the Classroom @ ECU
Audience Response Systems (clickers) are designed to actively engage students during class, gauge their level of understanding, and provide prompt feedback. Turning Technologies is our current supported clicker, based on a campus recommendation from IT support, faculty, and students. The purpose for maintaining this recommendation is to prevent students from having to purchase multiple clickers for different courses. The clicker recommendation/support includes integration with the Blackboard gradebook, as well as campus training and assistance.
As many of you know, last year Turning Technologies released Turning Point version 5, which was a major upgrade to combine multiple programs into one. Now it’s time to check in with our clicker users and ask for feedback. Please take a few minutes to tell us about your experiences using clickers in the classroom. Your feedback will help us in our planning efforts and in meeting your academic technology needs.
