Student response systems
Clickers are also known as Personal Response Systems, Electronic or Audience Voting Systems, Communication Systems, or sometimes the 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire?' technology. We have two system at the City, the Personal Response System handsets and the web based voting system, Poll Everywhere.
Clickers provide a fun way to encourage active participation from your audience, gather feedback and easily gauge group-wide understanding.
Students respond to questions posed during a PowerPoint presentation by pressing a button on their clicker or using their smartphone if using Poll Everywhere. The responses are then detected by a wireless receiver connected to the presenter’s computer or via wifi if using Poll Everywhere. Responses are instantly compiled by the computer and displayed within the PowerPoint presentation.
