Description

Students’ engagement in classes, especially in the large classes, is a challenge. Information technology (IT) is changing the way of learning in a classroom and use of IT in the education sector has significantly improved effective teaching and the learning process. Student response systems (SRSs) are one of such technologies that can enhance students’ engagement in the classroom environment. The purpose of this study is to understand how SRSs affect students’ motivation to engage in classroom activities. We hypothesized that innovativeness of SRSs, enjoyment and attitude toward SRSs can enhance students’ engagement in classrooms. We will empirically test the hypotheses. The study will help IS researchers and instructors to understand better how students’ engagement in the classroom environment can be augmented using SRSs. The findings of this study will also help in technological solution of SRSs. \ \ Keywords \ Student response systems, theory of innovation diffusion, engagement intention, classroom environment \
