Proposal Abstract

If you have used' clickers' or know about their use to create a more participatory atmosphere in classrooms, then this session will offer something unique for you. While clickers (or Classroom Response Systems -CRS) have made it possible for instructors in introduce a new emphasis on formative assessment and interactive engagement in the classroom – they have inherent limitations. This session will explore the use of GroupScribbles, a new software tool that embodies many principles of sound pedagogy and provides a rich pathway for capturing data from classroom assessment tasks (CATs). This session will engage you in thinking about new ways (across disciplines) in which you can make your students' thinking visible. Please bring your laptop or Tablet PC (with Adobe Flash) for a fully interactive experience.
