Investigating the Influence of Gender on Student Perceptions of the Clicker in a Small Undergraduate General Chemistry Course
Niemeyer, Emily D.; Zewail-Foote, Maha
Journal of Chemical Education, v95 n2 p218-223 Feb 2018
The use of electronic response pads or "clickers" is a popular way to engage students and create an active-learning environment, especially within large chemistry courses. We examined students' perceptions of how the clicker affected their learning, participation, and engagement in the classroom, as well as their overall experience within a first-semester general chemistry course at a liberal arts institution. Overall, students perceived that clickers provided a significant enhancement to their learning, with women valuing the technology to a greater extent.
