Classroom response systems (CRS), otherwise known as “clickers”, are gaining popularity in the K-12 market place. When they first hit the market, the higher ed space was targeted and textbook publishers bundled the clickers with individual textbooks. Now, these systems are being sold as site licenses and other custom arrangements to make it affordable for K-12 classrooms.
Clickers are promoted as a way to create equal opportunity for all students to participate anonymously and contribute in the classroom. Through the use of a receiving station, software, and a multimedia projector, students respond to questions by clicking their answers on the CRS pad. The results are instantaneous, and teachers can observe in real time responses to material that has just been presented. If “clickers” are a part of your technology plans for 2010, give us a call. Our trained experts at PSG can help you create presentations for Classroom Response Systems that meet your specific content needs.
