  Abstract: Research shows that learning is more effective when students are actively interacting with the professor and each other. To facilitate these interactions, the Technology in the Classroom Committee (TICC) at the Colorado School of Mines provides Tablet PCs to physics students in selected courses each semester. These Tablet PCs are used in conjunction with the InkSurvey tool, which allows for real-time feedback in the classroom. The Tablet PCs also allow for sophisticated student collaboration using notetaking software, providing a means for note sharing. In our poster, we explore how the Tablet PCs have been used in the physics classrooms at CSM and present preliminary data on student perceptions of having the Tablet PCs.
