Three GGC Students Become Finalists in This Year’s Georgia STEM Education Awards in Classroom Technology
Three Georgia Gwinnett College information-technology students were finalists in this year’s prestigious Georgia STEM Education Awards in the Classroom Technology Category for their brand-new app advancing a widespread, student feedback system - the clicker - which enables teachers and professors to query students at a moment’s notice. The students – Robert Curtis, Derek Donaldson and Kyle Dornblaser - developed a no-cost, smartphone-, laptop- and tablet-enabled app, as an alternative to a dedicated device, and it is now being piloted in classrooms on campus. The app comes at a time when the number of Internet-connected mobile devices is quickly surpassing the world’s population and app downloads, via Apple’s app store alone, have hit the 50 million mark.
