You must purchase and bring to the first class a response keypad (clicker) compatible with the Turing Technology system, or software needed to use the Turing clicker system from a web-enabled device. Used keypads may be sold or purchased on the student’s Classifieds page at www.tjsl.edu/classifieds. New keypads can be purchased by logging onto http://store.turningtechnologies.com using the school code "g8Rd" (case sensitive) to receive TJSL discounted price. Do not purchase a license for the web-based polling option. Turning Technology sells a variety of models. You do not need the most sophisticated. The cheaper Turning Technology RF Clicker (Product ID: RFC-02-BX) will work. One keypad will work for multiple classes. New keypads will take 7-10 days for delivery.
