Another item shared in my Teaching with Technology Diigo group*:

Using clickers in the classroom — Writing effective questions.

We are considering purchasing clickers for our department. I can see various ways that they would be useful and would save our professors time, such as having students use them to take a multiple-choice quiz. But for the purchase to be really worth-while, I think that they will need to be used more often, and this post offers guidelines on how to construct meaningful questions to aid learning.
