Developing Electronic Slates to Support the Sharing of Student Understandings in Class

Tuesday, October 18 | 9:00p.m. - 9:00p.m.
Session Type: Resources
Our prototype classroom interaction system allows students to create annotated graphical representations of their understandings on handheld computers. When they are ready, students submit their ideas wirelessly. The teacher then collects, reviews, selects, and anonymously displays exemplary, alternative, or erroneous representations to the class to support discussions and enhance student learning.
