  • Anatomy of a Clicker Question: Just what is a clicker? This video will give you a brief snapshot of what a clicker question looks like in the classroom, from start to finish.
  • The Research: Do Clickers Help Students Learn? Why, and how, do researchers suggest that clickers be used? In this video, Chandra Turpen shares the current research on how this tool promotes student engagement and understanding.
  • Explain to Your Students Why You're Using Clickers: If students don't know why you're using clickers, they may not buy into it. This video shows how we help get our students on board with this learning tool.
