Interactive learning performance through collaboration and personal response systems

Research Briefing

Keywords: learning, active learning, active collaborative learning, learning

Personal response systems are being increasingly used in classrooms and in virtual class situations. Modern personal response systems allow students in large groups to interact individually, respond to questions, see each others’ answers, hold opinion polls, share ideas, collaborate in dispersed groups in the class and a range of other activities.

Recently, personal response systems have developed as apps that students can use from their own personal devices such as laptops, tablets, mobile phones and even watches.

This research briefing shows the relationships between learning performance, collaborative learning and using personal response systems during learning events and will be useful for anyone involved in organisational learning, training or teaching of any type.
