Texting to learn

SMART Technologies announces that SMART Response PE interactive response system will replace SMART Response and make text answers a standard feature on its remotes (clickers). Students can use the multitap text entry feature to submit short text answers of up to 20 characters.

Using SMART Response PE in the classroom enables teachers to create quizzes and tests for formative and summative assessment or to ask spontaneous questions to gauge students’ comprehension at any point during a lesson. Teachers also have access to several thousand questions via the SMART Exchange™ online community.
