  • Nationwide call for educators to emphasize methods that engage students during class

  • Ubiquitous computing is becoming available on campus

  • Merge the above and provide a system that

    • Exposes students to technology in the classroom

    • Improves feedback for both formative and summative assessment

    • Allows more collaborative activities

    • Enables the creation of a richer set of course archives

  • Leverage existing technologies (Wireless networking, Tablet PCs and digital ink, classroom communication systems, and course specific software)

  • Create a mobile Tablab system

  • Extend the research already performed by utilizing wireless technology and a mobile system to bring the technology to students in large classroom

  • Utilize the technology in courses the PIs are already teaching, then encourage more use of the systems

  • Completed preliminary results using a single Tablet PC by the instructor

  • Completed some experiments with summative assessment using the Tablet PCs and digital ink

  • Goal to create several mobile Tablab systems

  • Future testing at a 1:1 ratio in larger CS courses

  • Future testing in other large lectures (> 60students) to determine whether system scales effectively
