Notes on our Interwrite Public Response System (PRS aka ‘clickers’)

leave a comment »

Goldsmiths has a public response system with something like (before my time) 200 handsets. It’s straightforward to set up and can be used to:

  • Keep students critically engaged throughout a lecture
  • Check students’ understanding at intervals (i.e. diagnostic formative assessment)
  • Poll opinion
  • Stimulate discussion

See it in action – 5 minute video from Strathclyde University, and more on the vendor’s site.
