The WTF Button in Higher Education

Interesting. I've sat in plenty of meetings where I wish I had access to a Confusion Button like the one Dr. Sampson invented and now utilizes. But, this platform raises some questions, too. Can faculty make meaningful mid-stream changes to lectures? What responsibility is there if a small number of students are confused while the rest of the class is ready to move forward? Can students adequately retain information if using this platform DURING the lecture? Technology opens lots of doors for teaching and learning...but it also brings with it lots of questions.
