"Integrate classroom feedback into notes within the live setting (i.e., in “real-time”)."
- Projecting notes through the tablet enables me to make regular changes throughout the semester and provide “current” content within each class without having to continually manage iLearn content.
- Managing/using completely electronic files (rather than paper copies) is a tremendous asset and reduces both personnel costs (i.e., time committed to making copies) and supply costs (i.e., paper and copy charges).
- Enables me to add written comments, work computational problems, and integrate classroom feedback into notes within the live setting (i.e., in “real-time”)
- Collect data and document methods.
- The feedback component is especially important as I can use the tablet to include other student responses in the answer section when reviewing.
- Collecting paperless data enables me to analyze/evaluate information in multiple labs across campus as well as edit methods in real time. Therefore, I am able to both collect data and document reasons/explanations that influence scores or environmental conditions which affect the means by which data should be evaluated. The “one note” software is extremely helpful in this usage.
- PDF annotator with online classes.
Instructor comments: "Although a laptop may offer similar features, the benefit of the tablet is the ability to write notes/comments on files during data collection. I have become much more efficient with the tablet’s usage and therefore will increase its integration into my ground and online classes."
