Clickers, Pedagogy and Edtechtainment

Alan Groveman, Inside Higher Ed, Jun 20, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This post caught my eye particularly because during the past several months I've become a bit of a clicker guy, much to my own surprise. This Inside Higher Ed author asks "Are we fostering an educational environment in which technology supersedes scholarship, an academy dominated by edtechtainment - pedagogy by gimmickry?" Fair question, although the article is not exactly fair and balanced. I don't think he would have needed to look very far to find an educator with an alternate view of using clickers in the classroom. Sure, they're not for everybody, and they should be used wisely and sparingly, but since when is that news? (BD)
