2017-2018 Mini-grant Project

This project aims to explore use of touch screen computers as an alternative platform to conduct Smart Notebook in-class activities in Engineering Technologies program classes.

Since John Abbott College possesses only one Active Learning Classroom, where we dispose with only 3 student smartboards and one teacher’s smartboard, the student groups have to be with size of at least 10 students, leading to limited experience of the students during the activities.

Updates and Project Proposal

Knowledge and Skills Brought to the Project

Knowledge and skills brought I am an extensive Smart Notebook user for the weekly in-class activities for my classes. I already developed weekly activities for the classes mentioned above and am looking to use them with touch screen computers. As a regular user of the sole Active Learning Room at John Abbott College, where students can work on Smart Boards, I am using a variety of approaches to promote active learning.
