St. John Ambulance

Classroom clickers, or student response systems, have become high-demand classroom tools in schools, universities, and training programs across the country. St. John Ambulance has several very traditional in-class public courses that needed more whole-class engagement through mobile technology. The company couldn’t afford $100,000 to equip 26 branches with hard-wired clickers but instead sought to boost knowledge of the material, student engagement, and instructor comfort with a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) solution.

In this case study session, you will learn how to select and implement mobile polling using a BYOD solution for public courses open to students from all walks of life. You’ll chart a path from concept to implementation, including finding a service, creating materials, training instructors, getting student buy-in, implementing in class, getting feedback, and reacting to feedback. Additionally, you will learn about the challenges St. John faced with a BYOD solution, such as training instructors and gaining their buy-in.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About benefits and challenges of the BYOD solution
  • How to integrate a polling app into the classroom
  • How to implement BYOD in public courses
  • About gaining instructor buy-in
  • About training instructors
  • About measuring the success of the BYOD solution
