Niemeyer, Emily D.; Zewail-Foote, Maha – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
The use of electronic response pads or "clickers" is a popular way to engage students and create an active-learning environment, especially within large chemistry courses. We examined students' perceptions of how the clicker affected their learning, participation, and engagement in the classroom, as well as their overall experience…

Cooper, Katelyn M.; Krieg, Anna; Brownell, Sara E. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
Academic self-concept is one's perception of his or her ability in an academic domain and is formed by comparing oneself to other students. As college biology classrooms transition from lecturing to active learning, students interact more with each other and are likely comparing themselves more to other students in the class. Student…

Ma, Sihui; Steger, Daniel G.; Doolittle, Peter E.; Stewart, Amanda C. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2018
Personal response systems, such as clickers, have been widely used to improve the effectiveness of teaching in various classroom settings. Although hand-held clicker response systems have been the subject of multiple prior studies, few studies have focused on the use of cell phone-based personal response system (CPPRS) specifically. This study…

Shin, Youhyun; Park, Junghyuk; Lee, Sang-goo – Interactive Learning Environments, 2018
Blended learning has steadily gained in popularity at the higher levels of education. This marks a change in pedagogical approaches from one-directional instruction to an interactive and technology-aided class. However, to manage fluent in-class activities and proper data analysis, real-time and fine-grained data collection activities are still…

Walker, Ryan J.; Spangler, Brooke R.; Lloyd, E. Paige; Walker, Bethany L.; Wessels, Peter M.; Summerville, Amy – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2018
Instructors often implement technology-based active learning pedagogies, such as clickers, to maximise student engagement and facilitate learning outcomes. Despite the abundance of clicker research, no work has directly compared student performance as well as student perceptions of clickers to a distinct, non-technological active learning…

Remón, Javier; Sebastián, Víctor; Romero, Enrique; Arauzo, Jesús – Active Learning in Higher Education, 2017
This work addresses the use of tablets and smartphones to enhance both student learning and engagement. Tablets were tested as potential substitutes for digital whiteboards, while smartphones were tested as potential survey media in the classroom using a question and answer method. Two teaching strategies were evaluated and compared: (1)…

Egelandsdal, Kjetil; Krumsvik, Rune Johan – Education and Information Technologies, 2017
Lecturing is often criticized for being a monological and student passive way of teaching. However, digital technology such as Student Response Systems (SRS) can be used to reconstruct the traditional lecturing format. During a series of five two-hour lectures in "qualitative methods" for first year psychology students, we used SRS to…

Basitere, Moses; Ndeto Ivala, Eunice – Electronic Journal of e-Learning, 2017
Today's 21st century students are regarded as "digital natives," who are influenced by digital environments for acquisition of information, communication and interaction. With the emergence of new technologies, educators are encouraged to find meaningful ways of incorporating these technologies into their classrooms. The practice…

Hung, Hsiu-Ting – Language Learning & Technology, 2017
The present study incorporates a student response system (SRS) as a means to engage students in a flipped classroom and promote active learning. While the effectiveness of such systems with regard to student learning has been well documented in disciplines that are dominated by lecture-based instruction, no studies have compared the effectiveness…

Balta, Nuri; Awedh, Mohammad Hamza – European Journal of Educational Research, 2017
Advanced technology helps educational institutes to improve student learning performance and outcomes. In this study, our aim is to measure and assess student engagement and collaborative learning in engineering classes when using online technology in solving physics problems. The interactive response system used in this study is a collaborative…

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…

Vondruska, Judy A. – ProQuest LLC, 2017
Over the past decade, peer instruction and the introduction of student response systems has provided a means of improving student engagement and achievement in large-lecture settings. While the nature of the student discourse occurring during peer instruction is less understood, existing studies have shown student ideas about the subject,…

Hung, Hsiu-Ting – Interactive Learning Environments, 2017
Flipped classrooms continue to grow in popularity across all levels of education. Following this pedagogical trend, the present study aimed to enhance the face-to-face instruction in flipped classrooms with the use of clickers. A game-like clicker application was implemented through a bring your own device (BYOD) model to gamify classroom dynamics…

Barr, M. L. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
The purpose of this study was to examine the role of anonymity in encouraging college students to be more cognitively engaged in lectures. Kinesiology majors from three universities were asked to respond to questions during two consecutive lectures using response methods of opposing degrees of anonymity, one using "clickers" and the…
