iPads in the Science Laboratory: Experience in Designing and Implementing a Paperless Chemistry Laboratory Course
Hesser, Tiffany L.; Schwartz, Pauline M.
Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, v14 n2 p5-9 Apr-Jun 2013
In the fall of 2012, 20 General Chemistry Honors students at the University of New Haven were issued the new iPad 3 to incorporate these devices both in the classroom and the laboratory. This paper will focus on the integration of the iPad into the laboratory curriculum while creating a paperless experience, an environment where no paper would enter or be used for the laboratory over the course of the year. Specific apps were chosen that would allow for an easy transition of course materials into an electronic format. After a transition period for the students and instructor, the overall experience has been a positive one and can easily be implemented into any teaching laboratory. (Contains 5 figures.)
