One of the committees I am currently serving on is evaluating Classroom response systems, AKA “clickers”. There has been a lot of activity in this space here at UBC, particularly in Physics.
My colleague Jim Sibley has been posting about these tools quite a bit lately in advance of our deliberations.
I ran across a very interesting site from Vanderbilt today which may be useful in the phase after our selection of a system. The site collates research articles from a variety of disciplines:
“Research on the Effectiveness of Classroom Response Systems”
Looks like a good site to explore!
