Clicking with Mr. Luft

More great press for PM teachers and technology in the classroom. Gary Luft’s use of Interactive Response Systems landed on the front page of the Lancaster New Era. Check out the article here. In a nutshell, the system is a wireless polling kit that  allows each classroom student to respond to a teacher question. Think of it as a classroom version of the “Ask the Audience” lifeline on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. Fondly referred to as the “clickers”, this interactive tool is a great way to flatten the classroom. Students who wouldn’t normally raise their hand may now feel less intimidated to respond and answer teacher questions. Additionally, the clicker system establishes an immediate feedback loop by which the instructor can quickly assess overall classroom comprehension and performance. Great work Gary!
