Teaching Institute
Classroom Response System and other related teaching technologies

Classroom Response Systems are available from several manufacturers, in a range of styles and complexity. One barrier to adoption of this useful teaching aid is the difficulty of using the technology by both students and instructor. This presentation describes a trial use, in two sections of Physics II at NJIT, of a clicker system designed to be as simple and robust as possible. We demonstrate the system and describe our experiences, as well as give feedback from the students on what they thought of it. In addition, other related teaching technologies will be discussed
