AAPT Announcer
Turning Passive Lectures into Interactive Learning Environments with a Classroom Communication System
written by Jose P. Mestre, William J. Gerace, Robert J. Dufresne, and William J. Leonard
We report on the potential of a classroom communication system called Classtalk as both a research and an instructional tool. With Classtalk, a central computer under the control of the instructor is networked to palm-top computers, each shared by 2-4 users. A video projection unit displays questions or tasks for students to work on collaboratively or individually. Responses to the questions/tasks are entered on the palm-top and immediately displayed to the entire class. We will discuss how Classtalk empowers both the instructor and the students. More specifically, we will discuss: 1) How we are using research findings to devise instructional strategies with Classtalk, 2) How Classtalk can be used as a research tool to explore not only students' conceptual understanding, but also the dynamics of cooperative learning, and 3) students' views and attitudes about Classtalk.
