I’ve always admired simple solutions to complex problems. Classroom clickers (or “student response systems” as they are sometimes known) have always struck me as overly complex – distributing one very specific device for one very specific purpose in the classroom.
The reality in most classroom is that students already have a handy device in their pockets, and these cell phones can easily be used to provide instant feedback to teachers.
So I created Clickity – the world’s simplest student response system. Simply ask the question, assign a color to each possible answer, and poll your students on the fly.
