More Professors Give Out Hand-Held Devices to Monitor Students and Engage Them
from The New York Times
If any of the seventy undergraduates in Bill White's "Organizational Behavior" course at Northwestern University are late for class, or not paying attention, he will know without having to scan the lecture hall. Their "clickers" will tell him. Every student in White's class has been assigned a palm-size, wireless device that looks like a TV remote but has a far less entertaining purpose. With their clickers in hand, the students in White's class automatically clock in as "present" as they walk into class.
