The use of personal response devices, or clickers, in the classroom has increased in recent years. Interaction and engagement, both important learning principles, can be facilitated with clickers. The traditional clickers are hand-held remote control devices that students use to press to answer to a multiple choice question projected on a screen. As laptop learning initiatives are gaining momentum at colleges and universities across the world, virtual clickers, where students log onto a website (instead of a handheld device) to participate in the polling, are beginning to be utilized. In this paper, the authors compare the uses of traditional hand-held clickers and the latest virtual clickers in a college level nursing course. Pros and cons of both clickers are discussed. Survey results will be analyzed.
