"It's really good for review," says Dr. Autumn Sutherlin about the set of iPhone NANO tools - applications which allow teachers to poll students using their iPhones. "I'll ask students questions that are coming up on the test, or related material. Students can get a feel for what they know and what they don't, and I can get a feel for what they know and what they don't. I think most students really enjoy using it."
Sutherlin also used iPhones in her University Seminar class during a discussion on critical thinking. "We could poll the students without them having to specifically volunteer that they were the ones feeling a certain way," she says. "I think it left the students more open to sharing what they truly thought."
