Summary: Supporting Structured Activities and Collaboration
through the Use of Student Devices in College Classrooms

ABSTRACT
We are interested in understanding how mobile devices can
enhance lecture based pedagogy by allowing the instructor and
students to interact electronically and in real time by exchanging
lecture materials and in-class student work. We have deployed a
Tablet PC based classroom interaction system in undergraduate
courses, and developed a pedagogy which incorporates mediated
student contributions into the classroom discussion. We found
that the classroom interaction system helped instructors to engage
the students and maintain high participation. The public display
appears to be a critical aspect of the system by motivating students
to be involved.
Categories and Subject Descriptors
