Entry 33: CPS/Clickers

On Tuesday I had the chance to sit in an all day district tech meeting. During this meeting I had the chance to play with the clickers. What a great way to get students to interact with the lesson and also get immediate feedback on how well students are learning the information. For those that have never seen or heard about clickers they are basically handheld devices that allow you to answer a multiple choice question that is on the screen by submitting your answer on the clicker. You can make the test any way you want and afterwards it gives feedback on how each student has done. I am looking forward to trying this next week with my resource communication arts class.
