IRT Lunch & Learn: Clickers and Learning Theories
Student Response Systems (or “clickers”), when used effectively, can enhance learning in the classroom by making presentations interactive, providing immediate feedback for students and instructors alike. Clickers allow instructors to quickly and easily assess student understanding of concepts and to generate discussion on controversial or sensitive issues in the classroom.
