Demonstrating its commitment to serve the needs of higher education, AT&T Inc. today announced the certification and availability of popular mobile student interactive response technology on its wireless smartphones. Designed to heighten the classroom experience and enhance learning at colleges and universities, the Web-based polling solution can be enabled using an AT&T-powered wireless device, such as an iPhone, BlackBerry(R) or other smartphone. A rapidly growing technology in higher education, interactive student response systems allow educators to go beyond traditional classroom lectures and teaching methods. Systems enable real-time student polling and offer in-depth analysis of responses, including tracking demographic information, ranking against criteria for decision making, analyzing comparative results that facilitate pre- and post-assessment and more.
The mobile student interactive response solution from Turning Technologies, a developer of interactive response systems, actively enhances the classroom experience for both students and educators. The solution can work within a traditional classroom environment or remotely for distance learning. Additionally, the mobile application can be used on Web-enabled AT&T smartphones, eliminating the need for clickers or other peripheral classroom equipment.
