Classroom response systems are effective tools that can impact a classroom in a very positive way. The CMU community is embracing this technology in a variety of ways. Learn how to create presentations that will allow you to increase classroom interaction, obtain real-time feedback, drive discussion, gather demographic info, deliver quizzes, survey groups, vote and much more.
This tool can help you address and implement a number of edu-speak buzzwords such as active learning, agile teaching, assessment, engagement, competition, feedback, motivation, peer instruction, reinforcement and more.
