Hello and welcome back to clicker chatter. I found an interesting article this week while I was looking for "clickers for sale" (more on all that next week). This article is from ABC news and talks a bit about how clickers are being used on university campuses.
This article pointed out some info that I hadn't come across before. It seems that publishers are selling clickers with their textbooks (the clicker part costing about $25), the thing is because different publishers are using different kinds of clickers, some students might have to buy more than each semester. Because of this (and an increase in use of the technology), some universities are actually wiring up their lecture halls to include built in clickers. That way it sets up a "universal system" on campus which makes it easier for both profs and students. Pretty neat, huh?
This article is a quick read and pretty interesting. Check it out:
