Active Participation through Student Response Systems


Speaker: Bill Pellowe and Paul Shimizu
Date: Saturday, May 28th, 2011
Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location: Nagasaki
Venue: Dejima Koryu Kaikan, 4F (large white building next to Prefectural Art Museum, and Dejima Wharf)
Description: We can motivate students to stay focused in the classroom through student response systems (SRS) that require all students to respond simultaneously. Low-tech SRS include giving students "batsu-maru" paddles to show the teacher. In more complex SRS, students use remote "clickers" to send in answers. Regardless of the level of technology, SRS improve student concentration, and encourage an active engagement with the material.

In this presentation, first, Paul Shimizu and Bill Pellowe will demonstrate a low-tech student response system they've developed using simple, 2-sided answer paddles.

Next, Bill Pellowe will demonstrate a high-tech response system that he developed. With this free, open-source system teachers can easily create web-based quizzes and surveys for students to take on mobile devices such as iPod Touch, mobile phones, etc. Feel free to bring your iPhone or iPod Touch.
Cost for JALT members: free

Organization: Nagasaki Chapter, Nagasaki Chapter of the Japan Association for Language Teaching
