Electronically Enhanced Classroom Interaction.
Draper, Stephen; Cargill, Julie; Cutts, Quintin
A design rationale for introducing electronic equipment (a group response system) for student interaction in lecture theaters is presented, linking the instructional design to theory. The effectiveness of the equipment for learning depends mostly on what pedagogic method is employed. Various alternative types are introduced, including: assessment; formative feedback on learning; formative feedback to the teacher; peer assessment; community mutual awareness building; experiments using human responses; and initiating a discussion. Prospective studies are outlined for exploring its use over new ranges of application. Rival views of the concept of interactivity are one way to organize the evaluation of this learning technology.
