Clickers in the Classroom

SMART's Senteo™ Interactive Response System has stormed our classrooms and both students and teachers are loving it—just ask Ms. McClenahan and Mr. Walsh. With the click of a button on these Senteo remotes, students can instantly tell teachers how much they know. Teachers can then use this insight to adapt their lessons based on students’ responses.

Teachers can:
  • develop interactive questions
  • gauge student knowledge with planned tests or informal questions
  • organize assessment results and track student performance
  • prepare simple or detailed assessment reports

Stop by the library to sign out a class set of 32 clickers, a receiver and assessment software that can be installed on your school or personal computer.
