What are clickers?
Clicker technology, commonly referred to as a student response system, provides students with active learning opportunities. Working within Microsoft PowerPoint, you pose a question, poll the students, and get instant feedback. Clickers are useful for examining students' prior knowledge on a topic, reviewing content, or helping to serve as a gateway to in-depth classroom discussion.
