Good Teaching Principles
  • Student-faculty contact
  • Collaboration among students
  • Active learning
  • Prompt feedback
  • Task on time
  • Communicating high expectations
  • Diverse talent and ways of learning

Can be achieved through effective use of
technology
Reference Chickering Gamson, AAHE, 1987

HP Tablet PC Project
  • Integrate HP Tablet-PC mobile technology in UG
    Engineering Technology courses
  • Electrical Circuits w/Labs (TCEL 205)
  • Analog Electronics w/Labs (TCEL 234)
  • Objectives
  • Increase usage of technology in classroom
    teaching
  • Promote collaborative work and active learning
    environment in classroom
  • Achieve active participation of all students
    during classroom instruction
  • Encourage other faculty members to experience and
    observe effective use of technology in their
    teaching

5
A Traditional Classroom
  • There is limited interaction between the students
    and instructor
  • Virtually no interaction between students
  • Written or verbal feedback is given at a later
    date, which is usually overlooked by students

6
Technology Enabled Classroom
  • Use mobile Tablet-PCs in classroom
  • Use Classroom Management Software that supports
    collaboration
  • Use digital note-taking tools
  • Use dynamic presentation

7
Wireless Mobile Learning Environment
8
Tablet-PC
  • Attached to a multimedia projector, the tablet-PC
    acts as a virtual whiteboard
  • The key features
  • work from anywhere,
  • take notes electronically,
  • import documents into journal,
  • edit, search and convert handwritten notes into
    typed text


9
NetSupport School (NSS) Supports Collaborative
Learning
  • The NSS networks students tablets to the
    teachers tablet supports sharing and viewing
    student screens
  • Allows instructor to broadcast the dynamic screen
    contents along with electronic ink in real-time.
  • NSS users can save the ink annotations and screen
    activity as a movie file
  • Save time by quickly polling the class and
    showing results instantly

Collaborative Active Learning Environment
  • Learning in teams
  • Share ideas and respond
  • Students ask questions to each other
  • Groups assigned for collaborative in-class
    activities
  • In-class assignments to encourage students to
    apply concepts learned during lectures
  • Feedback built-into assignment

13
Collaborative Learning In-Class Activities
  • The students work on in-class assignments,
    problem-solving exercises, project discussions,
    and collaborate both face-to-face and via their
    Tablet PCs.
  • The students share their class work instantly
    with other students or the instructor.
  • The instantaneous sharing in real-time improves
    collaboration between students and faculty
  • Adds new dimensions to the learning environment
    in the classroom

14
Students in Action
15
Collaborative Note-Taking
  • Windows Journal/MS OneNote

Student work can be publicly displayed, and used
as the basis for class-wide discussions.

Active Learning
  • Supplementary online material
  • Students self-test on textbook website
  • Discussion A Lemon 2 Nickels
  • Outside Classroom
  • Energy awareness project (Individual)
  • DC Motor Project (Group)

  • Approximately 90 of the energy consumed by
    incandescent bulbs produces heat, not light. With
    florescent light bulbs, there is 75 less heat
    generated, which also saves money on cooling the
    home, and these bulbs last 10 longer. By
    changing the five most used bulbs in my house
    with florescent bulbs, I can save 52 a year.

Where, Nnumber of fixtures PWEpower rating of
existing fixtures PWPpower rating of proposed
fixtures Hannual operating hours Cconversion
constant 1000W/kW UCusage cost for electricity
  • In conclusion, this project was a good way to
    see how much energy my home consumes per month
    and how the energy is distributed. It also
    allowed me to see the many steps that can be
    taken to cut down on the amount of energy used. I
    estimated that I could save approximately 300 a
    year on energy cost by performing the tasks
    mentioned throughout the report. Every part of
    the home provides an opportunity to use less
    energy. Even simple steps can produce big
    savings.

Discussion Conclusion
  • Students have expressed positive attitude towards
    use of technology in classroom.
  • It helps keep them interested and engaged.
  • Technology Changes dynamics of classroom
  • students become more self-directed
  • The teachers role in a classroom shifts to that
    of a facilitator rather than a lecturer

39
Discussion Conclusion
  • Technology can be utilized to enrich student
    learning experience
  • Using digital ink capability of Tablet-PCs
    students keep records of their learning process
    from the beginning, and steadily work on them,
    rather than cramming all the work at the end
  • Actively participate in class discussions and use
    technology in every aspect of learning
  • Learn to collaborate both face-to-face and via
    technology resulting in better performance
  • The outcome for the redesigned course compared
    with the course taught previously resulted in
    improved passing rate
