Case Study - Help Students Find Their Voice with Technology

Help Students Find Their Voice with Technology

Posted by Ed Brown | February 20, 2017 | Primary

Instructors are always searching for ways to engage students and encourage robust discussions in the classroom. But what can they do when there are some students who will not speak up?

Christopher Wiley, a Senior Lecturer in Music and Director of Learning and Teaching in the School of Arts at the University of Surrey, is one instructor who was struggling with just such a dilemma. He saw that his students were particularly reluctant to speak on topics with which they were less familiar for fear of getting the answer wrong.

Dr. Wiley chose to use Student Response Solutions (SRS) as a means of remedying this problem, and found it to be an effective way to give those students a voice.

·         Boosted students’ confidence

·         Enriched discussions

·         Informed the content of his lectures

·         Supported interactive pedagogies like game-based learning and flipped classroom

·         Ensured that everyone had an equal say
