Description: Would you like to have more dynamic and interactive classroom experiences that actively engage your students in learning? Classroom response systems (CRS) are technology that promotes and implements active and cooperative learning in the classroom. iClickers are one of the best know classroom response systems, but Learning Catalytics and Blue-Pulse are two other CRS. Suggestions of other CRS are welcome.

If you have never used a CRS or if you think you could be getting more out of your current CRS, this FLC is for you. (Note: CRS are appropriate for classes of all sizes and instructional teams are welcome to apply as a team)
