The i>Clicker, a device with a power button and five buttons marked A-E.

Clickers Are A. Awesome B. Beneficial C. Candid D. Diverting E. Engaging

Classroom response systems enhance the interaction between students and teachers, especially in larger classes. You pose multiple-choice questions, and students use personal transmitters or “clickers” to send private responses. They are less reluctant to respond, and even find it fun to participate. And, they are engaged in a way that encourages them to think more deeply about your presentation. Grab your lunch and come find out about how they can be used in your class through a series of demonstrations.
