Mice race

ProConnect tool

Purpose

  • Creating interaction
  • Linking devices to each other
  • Collaborative learning (multiply)
  • Stimulating engagement

Start ProConnect and let students log in with the group code. 

Open the media library, select 'Tools' and then ProConnect. Open Mouse race by clicking on it. A window pops up in which you can enter the numbers you want to multiply and the total amount of calculations.

Once you press 'Start', the calculations appear on the devices of the participants. In Presenter, the participants are presented as mice. Participants that answer questions correctly see their mouse advance in Presenter. The participant who answers all the questions correctly, sees his or her mouse finish first. Participants see their position in the race at the bottom on their own device.

The Mouse rice stops once all mice have finished or when the teacher presses the stop button. The top three is revealed in Presenter. Click on 'Full list' to reveal the positions of all participants in Presenter.

Close the ProConnect session by clicking the 'x' in the green toolbar.
