Last month I wrote a blog post about Mouse Mischief , unfortunately it appeared on the day they removed the beta version, Whoops! But, I am really pleased to announce that the full version is now available to download for free at www.microsoft.com/mousemischief
If you haven’t read my last post and don’t know what Mouse Mischief is, then here is a brief summary. Mouse Mischief is an add-in that Microsoft makes available free of charge, and that allows teachers who use Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 and Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 to make interactive presentations. With Mouse Mischief, teachers can add multiple choice questions to their presentations, and large groups of students can answer the questions using mice connected to the teacher’s PC.
Mouse Mischief not only gives students the ability to engage, have fun, and learn in new, interactive ways, but it also provides teachers with a more affordable alternative to purchasing expensive student response systems, commonly known as clickers, by letting students use affordable wired or wireless USB mice that their school already own
