    • Out of the classroom
main interest
Main interest
  • Explore Tablet PC based Classroom Pedagogy
    • Enhance traditional lecture
    • My experience – University Level, Computer Science Courses
    • Technology should apply just as well to other levels and other disciplines
technology vision
Technology Vision
  • Wireless Classroom
  • Interaction of Devices
  • Deployment scenario
    • Primarily Student Owned Devices
  • But for now – classroom devices
  • Concentrate on Tablets
    • Unique affordances
    • I’m still betting on Tablets

Classroom Deployments
classroom deployments18
Classroom deployments
  • Use of shared tablets
    • 2-3 tablets per students
  • Promote student discussion and group work
classroom pedagogy
Classroom Pedagogy
  • Active learning
  • Classroom assessment
  • Discussion around student artifacts
  • Learner centric design
what is special about ink
What is special about Ink?
  • Derivational activities as opposed to selection
  • Unanticipated solutions, misconceptions
  • Flexibility of domains
    • Symbolic domains
    • Diagrams
    • Annotation of existing content
  • Partial results, brainstorming, scratch work
  • Expression of individuality
what is special about digital ink
What is special about Digital ink?
  • Logistics
  • Capture and replay
  • Integration with lecture materials
  • Anonymous
impact on instruction
Impact on instruction
  • Classroom experience is different
  • Less material is covered
  • Radical change in lecture preparation
    • Learning goals first!
  • Developing pedagogy and resources for this style of teaching will take time
  • Mix technology supported instruction with conventional lecture
classroom presenter futures
Classroom Presenter Futures
  • Classroom Presenter 2.0 released September 2005
    • 2.1 will be released in Winter 2006
  • Development of CP 3.0 underway
    • Improved ink performance
    • Enable future extensions of Presenter
challenges of classroom networking
Challenges of Classroom Networking
  • Broadcast networking is a surprising challenge
  • We generally use ad hoc networking
    • But sometimes rely on access points
  • Issues arise with particular hardware/software/driver configurations
preliminary results
Preliminary Results
  • Positive Student Responses
    • Digital Design Survey (1-5 scale)
      • Impact on learning 4.4
      • Value of seeing solutions displayed 4.3
      • Recommend to other instructors 4.1
  • High rate of student participation
  • I’m looking for several faculty members interested in using Classroom Presenter with student devices
  • Requirement: Availability of Tablet PCs and networking support
  • Any course level or discipline
  • Interested: send mail to
