Tried last Fall in Prof Gary’s Phys 121 course with good student reactions.
or “I forgot my iClicker.”) More later.
Turn on the clicker by pressing the bottom “On/Off” button.
A blue “Power” light will appear at the top of the remote.
When I ask a question in class, make sure your clicker is on.
I may also ask you to talk about your possible choice/answer with your neighbor or in groups.
When I start the timer, select A, B, C, D, or E as your vote.
Check your “Vote Status” Light:
Not sure you saw the light? Just
Want to change your vote? You can
vote again as long as the timer is still going.
1. What is your major field?
2. How many years have you been at NJIT?
3. How have you used classroom technology in the past?
4. What do you think of the idea of using clickers in your class?
5. I am thinking of a letter from A to E. See if you can pick up my thoughts.
6. Let’s do it again, but show the graph while you select your answer. I am thinking of a letter from A to E. What letter am I thinking of?
You earn points for your i>clicker responses [for participation and/or answering questions correctly].
Until you register your i>clicker, your responses are tied to your clicker remote ID (located on the back of your clicker), rather than to your name.
When you do register, your previously recorded voting responses (if any) can be assigned to you.
