We report on the effectiveness of using interactive personal response systems in teaching physics in secondary schools. Our research were conducted over the period of 2013-2016 using the system called clickers. The idea is based on a reciprocal interaction allowing one to ask questions and receive immediate responses from all the students simultaneously. Our investigation has confirmed this method to be highly effective and powerful. In particular, students' ability to acquire knowledge increased with the time spent using clickers. We have successfully applied the system also to entire physics courses. As a result, a positive feedback from students has been observed: not only did they learn more but also the teachers were able to improve their own methods.
