Clickers, more formally known as personal response systems, are wireless handheld keypads that enable instructors to pose multiple choice questions during class and provide real-time results on a projected screen.
The answers are recorded to the instructor’s computer via a USB receiver, and can be saved for later review or to generate a variety of reports. Clickers make a lecture more interactive and provide students with a participatory role. In fact, some instructors find clickers a valuable tool for peer instruction which has demonstrated improved results in student learning.
