Synopsis

Increasing Student Engagement and Retention Using Classroom Technologies: Classroom Response Systems and Mediated Discourse Technologies examines new research on how classroom response systems are being used in higher education to increase learner engagement in an epoch of increasing globalization and diversity. These enabling technologies are reshaping and reframing the practice of teaching and learning in higher education. Through case studies, surveys, and literature reviews, this volume will examine how classroom response systems are being used to improve collaboration and interactivity between students, to create engaging social learning communities in the classroom, and how these technologies are being used to create more meaningful and authentic learning experiences. This volume will also discuss a framework for adopting and deploying these technologies.
