32 How would you use clickers to combat assumption errors?

33 Feedback from Students I loved that the clickers were able to show us information about the others around me while keeping it anonymous. It taught me a great deal about pluralistic ignorance. It was interactive, it told us what the reality was in our class and shed light on the concept of pluralistic ignorance. My expectations were very different than the reality often times. It showed us things that were counter intuitive so that we paid attention when you told us what the actual answer is.
