A Tablet in Hand

If you give a faculty member a tablet, all of her students a tablet and surround the class with the infrastructure needed to support this technology, what do you think will happen to the teaching and learning environment? Improve? Decline? Other?

    Maybe a little of both. Tablets can bring great resources to the classroom that might not otherwise be available. But I wouldn’t want to see teaching methods that only centered around what technology was available. Great question!

    I think the answer to that question depends entirely on HOW the instructor uses the technology. For myself, I would use it, not to substantially “improve” the classroom experience, but to change the way I give (for instance) quizzes. The real improvement would be less paper on my desk at the end of the day!

      I am really interested in the “paperless” possibilities that you mention below. We have a pretty good pilot underway this semester. I will be interesting to see what students say about having the technology in the classroom.
