2. Giving the mouse to a student to work on a problem directly from their desk. There are times and occasions that I want a student to show how to do something. This will be an excellent opportunity to simply give the student the mouse and have them work out and explain to everyone what they are doing.
Besides a direct help to the students I can advance a slide from anywhere in the room or I can point to something at the board without having to be at the front of the room. What a beautiful thing!
My daughter gave me the Logitech M215 wireless mouse for Christmas. I think it costs about $30. Although I just searched and found it at TARGET for $15. Someone else told me that it was on Woot.com for $5 at one time. As you can see in the picture the USB insert is very small. I really like that. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Thanks goes out to my Naperville Central Colleagues Flint Collier and Dan Olandese for sharing this tip with me. I love it!
How do you see it helping you?
