Studies have shown that the use of interactive teaching methods
in the classroom can significantly increase student learning.
the classroom learning environment
has shown that a key trait common to highly regarded teachers
is their ability to engage students, which keeps them alert, focused
and on-task. One of the best methods of accomplishing this is
to provide interesting lessons, creative activities, and open
discussions that encourage all students to participate.
Beyond Question is an interactive student response
system that provides the tools needed to actively engage every
student in the classroom. By using wireless response devices,
students are eager to participate in class discussions and surveys.
quizzes and subject matter reviews can be given to assure that
the material is being learned. Automatic grading reduces the teacher's
workload, freeing up valuable time that can be better spent elsewhere.
Students can answer multiple choice, true-false, yes-no and survey
style questions that the teacher presents to the class. Once the
students have responded, the results can be displayed providing
feedback to both the teacher and the class. Correct answers help
build student confidence and mistakes can be immediately corrected.
The teacher can modify the pace of the lesson, in real-time, to
match the needs of the class.
