The Doctoral Dissertation titled Interactive Tools as a Method o f Effective Teaching
o f Physics in high Schools is the result of 3-year study conducted simultaneously in two schools. The
studies concern the use of the PRS system, which is a set of interactive remote control tools, allowing
for simultaneous responses of students. The system gives the teacher an opportunity to ask questions
and receive feedback at any time during the classes. This is also apparent with regard
to the students who may receive a correct answer to a question they have just heard.
The research proved the educational effectiveness of the PRS system, as the group of students
taught with the interactive methods achieved much better results than the other two groups which
were taught in a conventional way. Being constantly focused on the material taught is one out of
many positive effects the PRS system had on the students, who were unaware when they would be
asked a question.
As it turned out, using the system of interactive remote controls is beneficial for both the
students and their teacher. The received feedback allows for further development and improvement
of the teacher’s working methods. In other words, this is valuable feedback that may be used by the
teacher to learn how to teach the students more effectively.
