However, more races out of IR technology and has been a pain to get a response to the receiver, even with multiple receivers. The iclicker runs out of radio frequencies so you don't have to aim for anything (a serious problem with IR Clicker) and register on clicker that you sent a reply. This is another advantage, it will flash green if you have successfully submitted a response, if something is wrong flashes red. Automatic shut off functions are great for saving. Teachers to screen iclilcker Panel is straight forward and simplicity at its best. Start, Stop, once you hit stop theres show and hide. Hit show and shows how students have responded and this can be projected on the screen so that the class can see the results. Two semesters of extensive use clicker with this and I have yet to replace batteries.
Of all the clickers I used this is certainly the best, and is similar to a cost for the IR Clicker I used in the past. Clcikers generally have an advantage for the House, I think. They are for use in a great lesson for the teacher to make sure that students have an understanding of what is presented. The only problem with Clicker is when the teacher does not know how to make clicker questions, such as every 2-3 minutes a new application of clicker is requested for the duration of the class. Overall, however, I think these are a great addition to the class to determine whether the majority of the class is to understand the concepts. An example of utility is when you see most of the students answered correctly (lets say), but then the rest answer c and there is no between. What you can do is address because students thought that the issue can be c without wasting time to lecture that explains why it is wrong when already all students understand that is incorrect. Base classes of great science and physics, maybe others but these are what I know of. There have been several cases I've seen lesson saved because the teacher was explaining an answer but, because of answers for clicker, realized that they didn't.help other customers find the most useful reviews This review was helpful?

And then, being a college student, I did not enjoy having to shell out any more money on materials, including iClicker.
Well, does its work and the battery life is excellent, but it is a useless piece of technology. The same function can be done simply by increasing the hand for free. But if a professor wants to do investigations in the classroom quickly, while maintaining confidentiality, then the iClicker is the answer. It's just a shame that costs as much as it does, no matter where you look both online or at a library, but at least not what is advertised to do.help other customers find the most useful reviews This review was helpful?
2 of 2 people found the following review helpful: 5.0 out of 5 stars the best of the bunch-and very useful, October 29, 2009 this review is from: I > clicker: A Classroom response system (misc. supplies) I worked with various Clicker for about 10 years.
As a teacher and now a Professor, I find these Clicker to be incredibly useful tools to support the active participation in the Chamber. Clickers provide the teacher with evaluation (pre or post) information that is much more accessible and timely-so I can adjust my lesson to the needs of students in the class. When I ask a good question with the Clicker almost all students become engaged and interested in the result. Follow-up process of debate and re-vote provides an excellent opportunity for peer discussion (communication, reasoning, problem solving, etc.). That said, many professors may be necessary to reflect on their use (i.e., how would you respond if you were a student in a class using this device, so you use it?) and perhaps adjust their practice. Not be used for the tests, nor would support more than a few percent during degrees to encourage student "buy-in" and the participation of assignment.
I realize that the cost is a factor for some students, but the model owned student makes more sense than any other distribution system. Generally you can resell the clicker when you are done for a substantial part of your purchase price-check your grip of textbooks used on campus.help other customers find the most useful reviews This review was helpful?
