ABSTRACT
This paper describes an application of classroom technology in
support of teaching through the use of examples and active learn-
ing techniques. Here we report on using Classroom Presenter, a
Tablet PC based classroom interaction system, in a senior level
course in Algorithms a domain for which the instructor believes
working on sample problems is critical to student learning in the
classroom. The role of the technology was to integrate activities
into the lecture so that students have the opportunity to work with
concrete examples in class, while the instructor can collect and
review student work in real time, incorporating selected student
answers into the discussion. In this paper, we describe the peda-
gogical goals of the instructor, the types of activities used to
achieve those goals, and the role that technology played in sup-
porting those goals and activities. The contributions of the paper
