The goal of this study was to explore students' reaction to use of a personal response system (PRS) as a tool for breaking away from traditional teaching and learning practices in Middle Eastern university classrooms. A PRS system typically includes a TV-like remote control for each student, and an infrared sensor connected to a computer that collects students' individual responses and displays group results. Participants included fifty-one graduate students enrolled in a one year diploma program training to become English teachers. Strengths and weaknesses of using the PRS in a specific Middle Eastern cultural context are described. Results include a survey of teacher trainees' attitudes, views, and experiences using the PRS, as well as their judgments about potential use of the PRS in their future classrooms. Students' performance on a multiple-choice quiz was compared in two conditions: lecture utilizing PRS vs. lecture with no PRS.
