Abstract

This research explores how the use of student response systems (SRS) effects elementary and middle school students' engagement in and learning from classroom lessons. A pilot study, which compared third graders' engagement in lessons involving the use of no technology, a document camera, wireless writing pads, and a SRS, found significantly greater engagement when the SRS was used. Ongoing follow-up experimental studies with students in grades 3 through 8 comparing lessons given with and without the use of SRS technology similarly show significantly greater engagement when the SRS is used. Findings related to the effect of SRS on student learning, however, show no significant differences when the SRS technology was employed.
