Donald George and Katia Passerini of New Jersey Institute of Technology and others offer great PowerPoint slide set titled “Tablet-PCs for Team-Based and Collaborative Learning – More Heads around the Screen.”

These slides focus on the use of the Tablet PC to support collaborative learning in the classroom. In the study, these researchers found (among other results) that Tablet PCs didn’t facilitate communication, but they did serve as a repository for each group. They acknowledge that not facilitating communication could have been a function of user preparation and study design.

This project was featured in The 7th Annual Faculty-to-Faculty Best Practices Showcase: Integrating Technology into Teaching and Learning.
