Are you smarter than a fourth-grader? Several Fremont National Bank employees got to find out when they challenged the fourth-graders at Washington Elementary in Fremont using CPS software, clickers and a teacher “Mobi” donated by the bank.
Information about the digestive system was reviewed, and fourth-graders taught their guests how to use the clickers to respond to questions.
The competition began with questions posed by teacher Linda Watson and presented using the e-Instruction/CPS software. Students and their guests quickly typed in each multiple choice answer and waited eagerly to see if their response was correct.
Incorrect responses resulted in re-teaching.
By the end of the game show, two of the bank employees, Patricia Hirschmann and Doug Hartman, were indeed as smart as fourth-graders.
The CPS clickers are a remote response system that makes it possible for every student to answer every question every time. The teacher Mobi allows the teacher to track the students’ answers and immediately provide individual help if necessary. Students become more active and attentive learners. Using clickers during instruction makes learning feel like winning for our students. — Fremont Public Schools
