Interactive Response Clickers Give Educators Insight into Student Participation

Advanced Education equips students with forward-thinking technology

 

The growing popularity in interactive whiteboards in the classroom has urged educators to go even further in the quest to provide unique, immersive learning environments. Clickers, wireless hand-held devices, are becoming the norm in North American classrooms as teachers continue to find new methods to engage students.

First adopted by university professors teaching large classes, clickers are now, literally, in the hands of thousands of elementary and high-school students. With a recent influx in whiteboard technology in classrooms, collaboration solutions companies like SMART Technologies Inc. keep coming up with new innovative learning software and products.

As a leading provider of SMART Board® interactive whiteboards and other SMART products, Advanced Education believes the wireless remotes, like the SMART Response™ interactive response system, make it easier for shy students to participate and help take the pressure off students who normally don’t like to answer questions. With just the push of a button on the clicker, students can answer questions on quizzes or in the middle of a lesson.

Clickers are a great way to let the teacher read the classroom. Since many students don’t like to participate verbally, it’s difficult to know who’s actually following a lesson. But, with the SMART Response system, teachers can instantly gauge how much the students know. The hand-held remotes help educators track when students aren’t quite grasping a concept, so they can adjust their lesson plans accordingly. The remotes also provide real-time feedback that tells the teacher which students are having trouble and may need the most help.

Advanced Education offers SMART solutions to school boards in Ontario to help improve learning outcomes by turning classrooms into interactive learning environments. For more information on technology solutions for today’s classroom or to set up a demo, contact Advanced Education at 1-855-502-0035 or visit them online at www.advanced-education.com.
