Clickers - Student Repsonse System

Often called "clickers," student response systems allow all students to respond to a question or survey at the same time, with results displayed immediately in a variety of formats such as a bar chart or a list of replies. Students are continuously engaged, and teachers appreciate the immediate response and the ability to see easily whether a concept or teaching point is comprehended, and who might need more time or additional help.

OTAN has produced a captioned video about using clickers in the ABE and ESL classroom. Classroom activities are demonstrated by instructors at MiraCosta Community College Adult Education, and students and teachers comment on how the clickers are used and what works best for them. The video runs 4.5 minutes and plays in Windows Media Player.

There are many other videos in the Technology Integration collection as well, on topics such as distance learning, mobile computer labs, interactive whiteboards, and document cameras. All demonstrate classroom use and include comments and explanations from teachers. Videos are short, none more than six minutes, and are useful for personal professional development or for group training. Please send comments and suggestions to OTAN Support.
