First Clicker Activity
Your child may have come home telling you they participated in a clicker activity. What in the world is that????? What they are referring to is an electronic student response system. I wrote a grant a few years back to purchase this system. Each student gets a small credit card sized unit to use to answer questions I present in a power point presentation. The students select an answer by pushing a button on the unit which sends a signal to a receiver on my computer. Once everyone answers, I stop the polling and a graph of all answers is displayed on the board. We then discuss the answer and can immediately address any misconception the students may have. This is a great learning tool and the students seem to love it. I use this system a couple of times a month. This was an expensive system to purchase, and I want the students to be very careful with the handling of the individual units.
