Clickers for Classroom Critters
Today an article in the Times recounts the use of classroom clickers to engage students in large lectures. I particularly liked how students could foil their use as automatic attendance checks: just give it to your friend to bring in! But kidding aside, they seem like a useful tool to increase participation and learning. I gave Twitter a go this fall and it didn't take, probably because I didn't set up anything specific for students to use it for other than their own questions.
