Mobile lecturing and class feedback – engaged teaching/learning
EDUCAUSE is a gathering of educators who use technology. This yearly conference just happened last week (October 15-18, 2013) and several of the poster presenters put their materials online.
One presenter, Perry Samson of the University of Michigan, uses SpashTop and LectureTools to gather realtime feedback from his class as he’s walking around the room lecturing from his iPad.
Here’s a video of his presentation and here’s the EDUCAUSE page on the poster presentation. It sounds like these tools have helped him engage his students more and perhaps even engage himself more as a teacher, as he can more effectively teach his students.
