Sketch Recognition for Digital Circuit Design in the Classroom Christine Alvarado
 

Summary: Sketch Recognition for Digital Circuit Design in the Classroom

1 Research Overview
Digital circuit simulation programs are powerful in edu-
cation because, unlike paper, they allow students to ex-
plore and verify the behavior of a physical system. Un-
fortunately, learning to navigate the interfaces to these
tools can be time consuming and useless from a peda-
gogical perspective. Our central aim is to build a tool that
allows students to sketch circuit schematics on a Tablet
PC and then simulate these circuits directly. Our hypoth-
esis is that such a recognition tool will enable students
to spend less time fighting with the interface and more
time learning the material. We will test this hypothesis
by completing a version of this tool for use in Harvey
Mudd College's digital circuit design class, E85, starting
in the fall of 2007 1
