1 WHAT IS A CLICKER?  An Automated Student Response device  Cordless & Portable  Uses radio waves to send responses to a base which processes the response data  A USB drive contains memory which runs the clicker program software and a grade book  A separate remote is used by the instructor which controls the questions being presented to the class  Can also advance PowerPoint slides!

2 CLICKERS…  Why i>Clicker?  CASSL funded a study on student response systems and we found that they were the most economical and practical option for our students at CRC.  i>Clickers are sold at the CRC bookstore for $30 used, $40 new;  Los Rios “standard”  Also sold on Ebay, CL, Amazon, etc.  Each takes three AAA batteries.  Training programs for instructors by i>Clicker  Many other companies make student response systems but they were not feasible for our needs in the social sciences department.

3 THE VALUE OF A “CLICKER”  A way to:  Engage students in any class size  Evaluate personal student knowledge  Avoid “hand-raising” when personal questions might lead to student embarrassment  Take informal attendance  Save all of this valuable data for future use

4 USE YOUR CLICKER! Is your clicker turned on?  Yes = A  No = B

5 CHECK YOUR KNOWLEDGE  Which of the following is the current president of CRC? C A B D

6 WHAT DO YOU THINK?  Who will be the next college president of CRC? C A B D

9 THE GRADE BOOK: I>GRADER  Shows screenshots of when clickers were used to remind instructors of what questions were asked when data was collected  Can be adjusted to reflect correct answer points and/or participation-based grades  Can be exported as an excel or.csv file

10 THE FUTURE  I>Clicker 2 just released and available  More capabilities, more costly (of course!)  Can track demographics if desired (sex, gender, grade level, age, etc – many pre-loaded options, programmable)  WebClicker now available for Smartphones  Apps available, but all students must have smartphones with internet access - $$$  Remote access is a potential issue
