14. Towards the Paperless Class [Angst & Crutchfield, Notre Dame]


Professor Angst incorporated iPads into his Project Management course in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the devices, observe their impact on IT support, and move towards an entirely digital course. Students used the tablets annotating readings, taking notes in the field, looking up information during class, and other tasks. Dr. Angst used the ATUAT model to evaluate acceptance of the technology.


01. In-Class Polling: Less Teaching, More Learning? [Brian Levey, Notre Dame]


Hoping to improve the classroom experience, Professor Levey used an online audience-response system that allows students to answer questions via text message or over the web. He coupled the technology with good questioning techniques and other effective teaching strategies. Both students and professor thought the system helped  enhance learning and make class more engaging.
