Demonstration of New Turning Technologies Clickers for Faculty - May 15. Comment from adevito1 on 04/27/2012
I really hope these provide much better service
compared to the PRS clickers that caused much
disruption and delay in class. I felt rather
like a guinea pig being tested when I was forced
to buy the clicker and then wait for 5 min at
the beginning of every class for the teacher to
start the program. When I am paying so much for
every min of class time that is a great deal of
resources going to waste. Perhaps money could be
better spent on paying adjunct professors a
decent wage or elsewhere. If it turns out to be
the same old story with the new clickers it will
be very disheartening. Here's hoping for the
best.
