Dr. Steven Hoffman, professor of history at Southeast Missouri State University, is using cutting edge technology to help students understand key historical concepts. Hoffman structures his lessons around an interactive simulation that allows students role play as leaders of various countries in the conflict. The simulation encourages students to think critically about key historical concepts by experiencing the consequences of important decisions, and many find that they learn things they did not expect. It is one of many ways that Southeast is taking advantage of the latest technologies to provide students with an exciting and robust learning experience.
This video will show you step-by-step how to use Google Docs and the iPod Touch to create a student response system in your classroom.
Student Response Network (SRN) is a powerful “virtual Clicker” student response system designed for use in school computer labs or with wireless laptop groups. It does away with the need for personal handheld “clicker” devices by providing a software-only solution for use with networked Windows desktops or laptops.
The key requirement when using wireless connections is that the clients that connect wirelessly must receive an IP address in the same, or accessible, range as the teacher's computer that is running SRNS Server
