Zappers on the go! Using EVS in fieldwork

I’ve just come across this great YouTube video produced by the University of Plymouth, showing how Turning Point zappers can be used ‘in the field’ without a computer. Instead, they communicate with a handheld ResponseCard Anywhere receiver. So the tutor asks a question, the students vote, and the tutor gets instant feedback on their understanding. The video shows Earth Sciences students on a field trip to some cliffs, so the tutor might be asking “So what do you think caused this structure (pointing)? Is it a) folding, b)sinsestralshearing or c) dextral shear?”

The good news is that LATEU has a ResponseCard Anywhere that you can borrow – please get in touch with me if you would like to try it out.
