Do Now Ideas…

iPods as clickers

I am currently knee deep in reading literature for my lit review for one of my graduate classes. I took a quick break to get your feedback on something interesting I ran across:

Colleen Ruggieri, and English teacher at Canfield High School, in Canfield, Ohio, makes use of virtual response systems as part of the assignment that the students see when they enter the classroom, what some of us call a “Do NOW” or “Bell Ringer”. She projects a list of the day’s activities on her interactive whiteboard and has students vote on the day’s first exercise by tapping the screen on their iPod touch. She states that she knows what needs to get done during the class, but this option gives students a say in what they’re going to do.

1) How do you feel about this?
2) Would you be willing to try this in your classrooms?
3) Does this make you nervous? If so…why?
