    • Engaging the Hopelessly Distracted: Using Mobile ARS in the Classroom

      Engaging students in the classroom is a challenge, but more so with the proliferation of technology, such as cell phones and laptops, that have served to distract students. In an effort to capture students’ attention in the classroom, many instructors have opted to use clicker technology. Mobile Audience Response Systems (ARS) are an alternative to clicker technology, where students repurpose and utilize their own cell phones, tablets, and laptops as their clicker device. Poll Everywhere is a popular ARS that is being used in corporate and academic learning contexts. Using Poll Everywhere creates an immediate active learning forum that increases interactivity and student participation, while providing instructors with instant feedback to make informed decisions. A panel of three librarians will share their experience utilizing mobile ARS at the University of Alberta and will provide an overview of its growing application in North America.
