Abstract Title: Archiving Student Solutions with Tablet PCs in a Discussion-Based Introductory Physics Class
Abstract: Many active learning based physics courses use whiteboards as a space for groups to respond to prompts based on short lab activities, problem solving, or inquiry-oriented activities. Whiteboards are volatile; once erased, the material is lost. Tablet PCs and software such as Ubiquitous Presenter can be used as digital whiteboards in active learning classes. This enables automatic capture and archiving of student work for online review by students, instructors, and researchers. We studied the use of digital whiteboards in an active-learning introductory physics course at California State University, San Marcos. In this poster we examine the archival features of digital whiteboards', and characterize the use of these features by students and researchers.
