Inexpensive Options for a High-Tech Learning Environment
Smith, Marissa L.; Cline, Mark A.
Journal of Science Education and Technology, v20 n6 p785-789 Dec 2011
Radford University was recently configured with a campus-wide wireless local area network. Using these new capabilities, a classroom-based Honors section of Concepts of Biology was conducted solely using electronic technologies (paper was never transferred from professor to student). To accomplish this, students used common software and freeware. Commercial versions of similar software are designed solely for academic use, however, here the students were trained to use software and technologies that will be available to them once leaving the institution. Overall, students in this course responded favorably to the use of technology and reported that it aided in their learning process. (Contains 2 figures.)
