Getting Started with Turning Technologies Clickers

Classroom response technologies (often called "clickers") consist of hardware and software that can be used to facilitate classroom interaction through polling (asking questions), collecting student responses, and providing aggregated feedback displayed as graphs projected from a classroom computer. This workshop will introduce participants to the use of Turning Technologies clickers, and explore effective instructional practices for using the technology to enhance learning in the classroom.


By the end of this session, you should be able to

  • Be able to identify key instructional uses of clicker technology to support learning in your course(s).
  • Understand how to set up and use Turning Technology clickers to begin basic polling in the classroom (launch questions, collect responses, save data and generate reports).
  • Have awareness of additional instructional uses of clickers in the classroom (e.g., remote polling, real-time response collection, self-paced polling).
