1 FREE Alternative to Clickers
- By Dian Schaffhauser
McGlasson sits on the Chandler-Gilbert CC committee that chooses technology for the classroom. It got to the point “where everybody was saying, ‘I want a clicker system in my classroom,’” she recalls, referring to the student response systems popular on many campus. But, she notes, “It’s a couple thousand dollars to buy a clicker system.” So McGlasson sends clicker-craving instructors to Poll Everywhere (polleverywhere.com)—it’s free for gathering up to 32 responses per question.
