Think, Pair, Share is a form of cooperative group learning where students silently form their own answer and then share with their neighbors, group, or table. This instructional mode encourages all students to participate and has the potential to create cognitive dissonance, which may result in deeper learning.

This is part of a series, Student Response Systems In Action,  sponsored by the Center for Faculty Excellence and ITS.

Over 1000 students at IC are using student response systems on campus and a dozen faculty are making use of both the Turning Technologies system and other web-based systems. There are many ways of using the systems including engaging students in large lectures, assessment and attendance. Several events are scheduled this spring to share the possibilities of this technology.
