Clickers vs. Mouse Mischief

 I recently was able to purchase some eInstruction Student Response Clickers and Mobi Pad through grant money.  I painstakingly mulled over my options and decided they would be the best option (only because I had the money available). Before my jump into this expensive solution to student engagement and assessment, I found Microsoft Mouse Mischief which would be a nice alternative for those without grant or classroom money.  I was looking at all of my options and thought I could ask the students to all bring in their own mouse (thereby they might take care of it more) and I would provide the hard wire set-up.  You essentially have the same as eIstruction SRC for a lot less.  A nice alternative to those who are looking at student engagement in the class and easy assessment.  The best part is that Microsoft supports Mouse Mischief with a free download and immediate lessons.  Check it out and let me know how it works, Heidi.
