Assignment 5- Grant proposal to fund a project
Title of your project
Student Response Systems- Creating a More Responsive and Attentive Class
Goals of your project
The goal of my project is to introduce clickers in the classroom in order to create more active participation, Student response systems can assist in gaining immediate feedback for students and teachers, presenting a question that prompts a discussion on a topic, or just maintaining active participation and attention of the students. It is also useful for polls and assessments like short quizzes.
Budget - Amount requested and materials you wish to purchase:
A set of 30 student remotes, 1 instructor remote, 1 IR receiver, 1
software CD and a custom case. This is from the Smartroom Learning Solutions
website Beyond Question - Standard set (# 02-030) Cost: $1,295
Procedure – How will you carry out your project?
What will the students do with the resources you have requested:
The students will respond with their student response systems or “clicker” remotes to questions or polls reflecting what they learned or their preferences. This will provide immediate feedback and assessment. They will also use them to take short quizzes.
Evaluation: How will you determine whether your project is successful or not?
The success of student response systems can be evaluated by observing how much participation has increased or decreased and how much more or less attentive students are during class. Feedback received from the response system itself will show how well the response system is working by the answers received measuring student progress. Adjusting lessons and questions is also easier with the use of the technology.
