I teach high school world history. I have a SMART board,
airliner and a class set of clickers. My response as to how
do you use them? How do I NOT use them...that's a shorter
How I use the clickers:
To answer questions based on reading in their text books, to
answer questions interspersed throughout lectures, to answer
questions after we watch a video clip or full video, to take
tests, to review info from previous lessons, to answer
questions based on a visual I provide (painting, political
cartoon, map, etc), to save paper - I make a class set of a
worksheet and they answer the questions via the clickers, to
take surveys about various things.
I use my clickers almost every single day! And my high school
kids LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!! It has created an even more
engaging class than I had before. If I had to give up all my
tech toys and could only keep one - my clickers would be it!!!!
Hope this helps.
