A clicker, sometimes referred to as a student, audience, or classroom response system, is a device used in the classroom to poll students. Turning Technologies is the company that makes the clickers that we use here at North Shore Community College. A Turning Point clicker can be used to determine knowledge level in a certain subject matter or to voice an opinion on a topic. They are a tool to help with student engagement, retention of knowledge, and student collaboration. There are four sets of clickers at the Danvers Campus and three sets of clickers at the Lynn Campus for faculty to check out.
