Automated Classroom Response Systems: Implications for Sexuality Education and Research
Fisher, Christopher Micheal
American Journal of Sexuality Education, v1 n4 p23-31 Oct 2006
Since the time of Kinsey, sexuality education courses in colleges across the country have drawn large numbers of co-eds to their rosters. As educators move beyond discussions about the facts of anatomy, physiology, and biology, they increasingly look to technological advances to further the art of teaching. Taking a conversational approach to sexuality education, the author discusses a new technology, Automated Classroom Response Systems (ACRS), which can be used to stimulate conversations on sensitive and controversial topics in large (100+) classrooms. A review of implementation strategies and technical considerations of ACRS technology follows. A final note on the potential for sexuality research with large survey samples concludes the essay. (Contains 4 figures and 2 resources.)
