Personal Response Systems (PRS) in the Lecture Classroom The third rock From the Sun is Mercury Earth Mars 7 PRS in the Lecture Hall

Basic idea: collect real-time response of student understanding of material Typical situations: after lecturing on some material in association with assigned reading Technique: pose a multiple choice question Immediate response Delayed response after peer discussion 8

Low-Tech PRS Colored card system Common backing color Very reliable technology Observations: only about half of the students will bother, many

forgetting to bring their cards goofy responses (ex: multiple colors) Does provide real-time feedback but not statistics or a record 9 High-Tech PRS Infrared response device similar to a TV controller Computer-based system Tracks student responses

Displays which students have responded Allows immediate statistics on responses Drawbacks Time-consuming to set up Prone to technical failure Difficult to use at the same time with computer presentation software such as Power Point Concern: is this hi-tech spoon feeding? 10
