An Electricity and Magnetism Problem-based Learning Experience Using Tablets

 

A presentation from the 2014 Winter Meeting: Orlando, Florida

Abstract

A neutrino detection scenery taken from the Science 360 app is analyzed in the problem-based learning (PBL) formalism. This activity was worked out in three undergraduate electricity and magnetism courses where 90 students majoring in engineering participated in the 2013 fall semester. Tablets were the main tool used in all PBL steps. The way in which the PBL technique was worked out before tablets were invented is contrasted with the way in which it is applied now with tablets.
