  Location: TBA

  Abstract: The Technology in the Classroom Committee (TICC) at the Colorado School of Mines provides and manages a number of electronic education tools available for anyone to access. These include the InkSurvey tool, a wiki for information on the software used by TICC, and a forum for users to discuss Tablet PCs and the classes in which they are enrolled. InkSurvey, in a manner similar to clickers, provides instructors with the means to pose open-format questions. Combined with the use of Tablet PCs, this allows the instructor to perform a real-time formative assessment of students' problem solving abilities. This poster will explore the utility of each of these tools and suggest how institutions outside of the Colorado School of Mines may use them to further their own educational programs.
