Project Title: Use of touchscreen computers for in-class active learning activities
Description of project:
The project will explore the use of touch screen computers as an alternative to smart boards for students during in-class active learning activities. Two core courses in the Engineering Technologies program, Applied Physics and Thermodynamics, will be involved. These classes are primarily theoretical. Using touch screen computers will allow students to refine their problem skills and develop their critical thinking ability.
