Abstract

Digital ink technology was integrated with the active, learnercentered pedagogy, Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning. Tablet PC's were used both wired and wirelessly in a classroom to allow more extensive communication. Cooperative learning techniques combined with the tablets made students more active participants in the learning process. Networked tablets allowed drawing of complex chemical structures, and the projection of student work for discussion. Handouts, files, and quizzes were handled electronically. Student opinion surveys suggest this technology increases learning.
