WIPTE 2006: TabletPC Utopia: 100% TabletPC Deplymnt
Ken Graetz is director of distance at Winona State, MN
His job is to make all these people use them:
they are not pilot testing - everyone (staff + students) have one! Whoa?
7500 tablets deplyed currently working with Gateway (6000 undergrads, 1000 grads)
Students/Faculty offered choice: Mac iBook or Gateway? 3% chose iMacs.
M275s were the starting Gateway. Now replacing them with M285.
50% of faculty integrated Tablets in their instruction. Using OneNote instead of the projector.
LMS is http://www.desire2learn.com/
- Turn in statistics homework as one file, which is a blended mode file with text, handwriting, screen captures from SPSS etc.
- the idea is that the homework is being turned in as it should have been with complex formulae, SPSS graphs and text as one digital file
- Used dropbox feature of LMS (D2L)
- Grading using digital ink.
58% assignment submission used Word
40% assignment used OneNote
Many students stopped using OneNote
--- Why? Less familiarity
--- No training in how to set up notebooks in OneNote
--- Mis-submitting personal notes due to lack of traiing (Homework + Mom's to-do list + grafitti) - Really funny!
