- by arbor-vitae Aug 23, '12Anyone familiar with the Student Response System? Along with all the required texts and software I had to purchase, there was a student clicker as well. It's put out by Turning Technologies for the classroom. Is this any good for nursing school. Costs about $56.00

There are actually many types of 'audience response' systems, including some that you can use with cell phones - no special devices needed. IMHO, They should look into one of those instead.
- Aug 24, '12 by bubblejet50I had to use a clicker for a few science classes in my day. They are okay. You answe questions through.a website with them.
- Aug 24, '12 by PediLove2147We had to use these for one of my psychology classes. The professor incorporated questions throughout his PowerPoint and we answered with the clicker. He said it was his way of gauging if we understood the information.
We only paid $35 for them thorough, that was 4 years ago though. Guess the company thought they could make more off of students. See if anyone you know is selling them. Outside of the classroom they aren't usable so I am sure someone wouldn't mind getting rid of it.
- Aug 24, '12 by StephalumpWe had to use them in some of my philosophy classes a few years back. It was kind of a fun way to stay interactive during lecture. We didn't have to buy our own, though. I believe they were loaned out to us and we only paid if we didn't return them at the end of the semester.
- Aug 24, '12 by BacktotheBeachMy nursing school made us buy them for about what you are paying. And they never worked right and the idea was scrapped. It was originally sold to us that we would be taking ALL OUR NURSING EXAMS on these!! We were freaking out....Everyone was so happy when they were scrapped.
- Aug 24, '12 by caleyjo21We used them in our critical care class. The teacher would ask us questions and no one would ever answer for fear of getting the answer wrong. So she decided to start using the clickers and have questions in her power point slide, we would answer them and it would show when everyone had answered the question, and then what % of people chose each answer. I think that they really helped our class. But then again we didnt have to pay for them either!
