increase efficiency and feedback
Increase efficiency and feedback
  • Reading quizzes give you the excuse to “stay up” with the reading*

this incentive allowed me to keep on top of my course workload and to maintain a positive study habit

As it mattered for our final grade we studied and

did the readings every week instead of hoarding up

the studying till before the midterms and final exams.

*UCSD First Year Students

increase discussion
Increase discussion
  • EVERYONE will get a chance to be involved (not just the 2-3 usual people)

The green colored clicker questions forced

me to interact with my peers and

hence helped in forming

good study groups as well as friends.

Even though I never physically spoke during class lecture

as a whole, I felt as if my voice was heard during the

opinion clicker questions.  In this class I feel included…

in other classes I feel excluded.

develop analysis and argumentation skills
Develop analysis and argumentation skills

The "green” questions also facilitate some

thought provoking perspectives on the material,

and they've helped me formulate my own questions

and analyses outside of class.

I learn not only from professors' teaching, but also other

students' ideas as they express themselves about

green clicker questions.

I believe the use of clickers really help us learn.

Finally

In this lecture we were asked to

engage in a discussion about the past

where as in other lectures I have had

dates thrown at me and

I was expected to memorize them

without really understanding how they

played into the big picture. I always wanted to come to class because

lectures made me look at the past in a

different way than I had before. 

why clickers
Why clickers?
  • I want you to have the best possible learning experience…
    • Practice argumentation skills
    • Look at things from multiple perspective
  • Large classroom  smaller…
  • Your fellow students strongly recommend it
change frequency
Change Frequency:*
  • Original i>clicker:
    • Press and hold the power button on the remote until the “Vote Status” light begins flashing.
    • Use the A-E buttons to enter the two-letter frequency code. The A-E LEDs flash green indicating the frequency change was successful.
    • BUT REDO THIS EVERYTIME YOUR CLICKER TURNS OFF!
  • i>Clicker2:
    • Press and hold the Power button until the two-letter frequency on the LCD flashes.
    • Use the A-E buttons to enter the new two-letter frequency code. A checkmark appears on the LCD indicating the frequency change was successful.

*Professor must have base station plugged in and connected.

Each classroom at UCSD has an assigned frequency – on base station
