Episode 20 of BiblioTech: Clickers

Instant feedback is extremely valuable to a teacher, especially in larger classes. Classroom response systems or clickers help make this possible.


Welcome to BiblioTech – the podcast about emerging technologies for academics. Your host is Rochelle Mazar, an emerging technologies librarian at the University of Toronto Mississauga.

Every month you can listen in as Rochelle talks about what’s new in technology and what academics should be paying attention to. It’s hard to keep up with all of the new software, tools and gadgets. That’s where Rochelle comes in.

Episode 20 – Clickers

In this episode I look at the pros and cons of clickers. Yes, they can help teachers and students, but they can also be easily abused. (Running time: 10:53 mins).
