It was only a matter of time before we witnessed the evolution of the clicker. We now have several app options for clickers on all kinds of mobile devices and computers.
What is a clicker? A clicker is basically a device used for gathering data or information from a group of people. For example a group of teachers or students. The information results of a question or poll can then be displayed back to the group in the form of a chart or graph. One of the greatest benefits of the clicker is the results are often instantaneous!
Check out some examples.
