Teachers and students like clickers — hand-held devices that let students send their answers to the teacher, reports the Idaho Statesman.
(Sixth-grade teacher Jill) Hanford swears by the “clicker,” a device that looks like a remote control but functions as a silent link between Hanford and her students. The clicker lets students answer Hanford’s questions simultaneously and allows her to see what proportion of the class understood the concept.
All students answer each question. But nobody’s embarrassed by being wrong in public.
