Quick Bytes – Student Engagement

Date: 9:00am - 10:15am PDT May 22, 2013

Personal Response Systems or “Clickers” (9:00 – 9:25)

There are several instructional applications of classroom polling.  In this Quick Byte, we’ll use one of the clicker sets in the IT Sandbox to demonstrate and discuss how you might use polling with your students.


Crowdsourcing (9:30 – 9:50)

Crowdsourcing, or having a distributed group of people collaboratively working on a project, has several potential applications for higher education.


Social Bookmarking (9:55 – 10:15)

With so many resources on the web, how do you keep track of them all? Social bookmarking services like Diigo or Delicious enable users to compile web bookmarks into a personal or collaborative collection that can be sorted, tagged, and annotated.
