Using Tablet PCs in the Classroom: An Investigation of Students' Expectations and Reactions
Bonds-Raacke, Jennifer M.; Raacke, John D.
Journal of Instructional Psychology, v35 n3 p235-239 Sep 2008
The purposes of the current experiments were to investigate: (a) students' expectations with regard to the use of Tablet PCs within the classroom, (b) students' attitudes toward the implementation of Tablet PCs within the classroom, and (c) the resulting classroom environment from the use of various technologies. Results indicated that although students were unsure about whether or not instructors would utilize Tablet PCs in the classroom, students reported very positive attitudes toward this implementation. In addition, students overwhelmingly reported that the classroom was interactive and engaging, the use of technology enhanced the classroom, and that they benefited from its use. Future research should not only investigate the attitudes towards the use of Tablet PCs in the classroom but also the impact that Tablet PCs have on student learning. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
