Simple voting boxes to enhance learning

Inge de Waard, Ignatia, Aug 26, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I read from time to time about in-class voting response systems, and while I think it's a great pub game, I don't see the merit in education. Which is why I'm a bit surprised to see Ignatia promoting them. But then, it occurred to me, perhaps I'm missing the emphasis on voting. And perhaps these devices will be used, much like their real world counterparts, can be used not just to count results, but to produce results. Ah, and the educational implications of data manipulation are indeed evident. Or maybe there's some way for students to know that in-class voting is not being rigged?
