Progressive teaching of mathematics with tablet technology

Loch, Birgit and Donovan, Diane (2006) Progressive teaching of mathematics with tablet technology. Australasian Journal of Educational Technology , 9 (2). pp. 1-6. ISSN 1449-3098


We investigate a multimodal approach to lecture presentation built on tablet technology. This innovative approach presents a framework which provides organizational structure to the lecture and facilitates incorporation of additional detail through electronic ink. Diagrams, solutions and concept maps are developed spontaneously in real time, thus engaging and promoting student directed learning, through a creative, interactive and dynamic process. Our study analyzes benefits and drawbacks of this approach, through evaluation of instructor experiences and student feedback for three undergraduate mathematics courses held over three consecutive semesters.
