Abstract

While interactive polling technology has been available for over a decade, little research has been done on the effects the technology has in the classroom. Several articles (for example, Panayiotidis, A. & Masikunas, G., 2005 and Draper & Brown, 2004) have been written citing its use in larger college settings. King's College, a small liberal arts college of about 1800 students, has just introduced this technology into our classrooms. This paper looks at the effects in one classroom, an Introductory Psychology class with 31 students. The paper will include an overview of both student survey results and opinions, as well as a discussion by the teacher of the pros and cons of introducing an interactive polling device into the classroom. We will also discuss the overall impact on learning, as well as lessons learned from our first semester using these devices.
