Pebble to cause ripples

Interactive Education will be showcasing its new hand-held learning response system at the Education Show, stand N55, NEC Birmingham from 4th-6th March 2010.

The new handset is called Pebble as it has a streamlined design which is easy to grip, so is ideal for early years and special educational needs students. The system has full interoperability and flexibility, and works excellently with the latest version of Genee World’s ClassComm software which allows teachers to create lesson plans quickly and easily, as it is compatible with PowerPoint.

The system also works seamlessly with Genee World’s Cens-Us software which allows the teacher to set ad-hoc questions in just three clicks as the lesson or subject matter is delivered.

The system gives the student an opportunity to express themselves with yes/no, true/false, numeric, and multiple choice answers. It is also ideal for polling, and with the ClassComm software there is built-in games which convert the answers and speed of response into ‘race games’ showing who the leaders are in a virtual race.
