Creating an Interactive Learning Environment: Experience of using a Student Response System

Hellström, Daniel LU and Johansson, Ola LU (2008) LTHs 5:e Pedagogiska Inspirationskonferens, 2008 In [Host publication title missing] p.1-3
Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to briefly discuss the rationale for using Student Response Systems (SRS) and to share our experience of using this teaching technology in a training session. Our experiences support existing pedagogical research and show that SRS can be used to transform traditionally passive lecture-based classes into stimulating, active learning environments. Students demonstrate better comprehension and motivation when employing SRS compared to being taught in conventional lecture-based classes. Moreover, as teachers, SRS enable us to immediately assess student knowledge of a particular concept, and adapt the instructions we give to the learning needs of the students.
