Getting Started with Clickers in Higher Education

 
  How do I get started with Clickers in Higher Education?

Getting started with clickers can seem like a daunting task – but it’s not!  Here are some steps to set you on the right path to use clickers in your classroom.

The following video is a quick overview of TurningPoint 5 Software and what it can offer you:

Now that you have a basic understanding of the Software, it is time to begin your journey of getting set up and ready to go:
  • Request an Instructor Kit:  http://www.turningtechnologies.com/instructorkit
    • An Instructor Kit is for instructors that are adopting clickers for their class(es).
    • An Instructor Kit contains a clicker and receiver for you to practice your presentations.
       
  • Add Clickers to your Bookstore Order (return to your Department Designee or Bookstore Representative)
    • Include the course name and number of clickers needed in stock for your class(es).
    • Provide the following ISBN for the clicker currently used on campus.
      Turning Technologies ResponseCard NXT  ISBN:  978-1-934931-49-3

      • ResponseWare is available as an App for the iPhone®, iPad®, iPod Touch and Android™ products. 
      • ResponseWare is also available for any web-enabled device at: http://rwpoll.com.
    • Make sure your campus supports ResponseWare
      • Some campuses are not equipped with access points to sufficiently run mobile solutions of any kind.
      • Some campuses, at the request of the faculty, do not support mobile solutions like ResponseWare, as they do not want extra distractions in the classroom.
    • Request a ResponseWare Presenter Account
      • If you plan to use ResponseWare in your classroom, you must request access from your Campus Clicker Support Team or Account Executive at Turning Technologies.
      • Your ResponseWare Presenter Account access will come to you via email from: Support@turningtechnologies.com
      • Check your spam or junk mail since sometimes this email is diverted.
      • Your access will be your school email address and a password you will set at: http://rwpoll.com
      • You will use these credentials to turn on ResponseWare in the classroom prior to polling your students.
         
  • USB RF receiver
    • Classroom computer users – make sure that the classroom computer has a receiver. 
      • This can be done by contacting your Campus Clicker Support Team.

    • Personal computer users – remember to bring your Instructor Kit receiver to class!
