Carroll, Julie-Anne; Sankupellay, Mangalam; Newcomb, Michelle; Rodgers, Jess; Cook, Roger – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2018
Most pedagogical literature has generated "how to" approaches regarding the use of student response systems (SRS). There are currently no systematic reviews on the effectiveness of SRS, for its capacity to enhance critical thinking, and achieve sustained learning outcomes. This paper addresses this current gap in knowledge. Our teaching…

Lucke, Terry; Dunn, Peter K.; Christie, Michael – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2017
This case study trialled the introduction of a student-response system (Top Hat) in a third-year engineering Fluid Mechanics course (n = 44) to improve student engagement, motivation and cognition. It was recognised that for the potential benefits of student-response systems (SRSs) to be fully realised, more time must be allocated for student…

Sawang, Sukanlaya; O'Connor, Peter; Ali, Muhammad – Journal of Learning Design, 2017
This paper aims to answer how we can increase students' engagement in a large class. We hypothesised that the use of KeyPad, an interactive student response system, can lead to enhanced student engagement in a large classroom. We tested a model of classroom technology integration enhancing the students' engagement among first year undergraduate…

Fong, Michelle – Journal of Information Technology Education: Research, 2015
There is a dearth of research into teaching strategies and learning approaches for units involving sensitive topics that can provoke an emotional response in students. In a business ethics unit, attempts to strike a balance between conceptual knowledge and theory and skills training can be challenging because the unit can involve personal,…

Calma, Angelito; Webster, Beverley; Petry, Stefan; Pesina, Jenny – Australian Journal of Adult Learning, 2014
A quick polling initiative was tested in finance classes using multiple choice questions to determine whether it can improve student interaction and engagement in a large class. Students (n = 446) responded using either a smartphone app (53%) or by using pen and paper (47%). Immediate feedback was provided to students using charts that were…

Dunn, Peter K.; Richardson, Alice; Oprescu, Florin; McDonald, Christine – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
Using a Classroom Response System (CRS) has been associated with positive educational outcomes, by fostering student engagement and by allowing immediate feedback to both students and instructors. This study examined a low-cost CRS (VotApedia) in a large first-year class, where students responded to questions using their mobile phones. This study…

Walker, Ruth; Barwell, Graham – International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2009
Peer bias is recognised as a primary factor in negative student perceptions of peer assessment strategies. This study trialled the use of classroom response systems, widely known as clickers, in small seminar classes in order to actively engage students in their subject's assessment process while providing the anonymity that would lessen the…
