Classroom response systems promote learning in small and large classes and in both lecture and lab settings. In the last decade, the rapid proliferation of smart devices has presented an opportunity to develop new interactive mobile classroom response systems (MCRSs) which have the potential to enhance students’ learning experience.

This talk will summarise an on-going research conducted at Kwantlen Polytechnic University aiming to assess the impacts of using an MCRS on students’ engagement and performance in lab science classes.

Preliminary findings are suggesting that the use of an MCRS makes classes more engaging, improves the amount of interaction between instructor and students, improves student’s understanding of how well s/he comprehends the lecture content, enhances students’ learning, creates a better learning experience, and does not distract students from focusing on class concepts.
