The Impact of a Technology Based Mobile Hands-on Pedagogy on Student Learning, Course Design and Faculty Perceptions of Use in STEM Education
Tuesday, June 28 2:45 PM-3:05 PM
This paper outlines the impact of mobile technology on student learning, course design and faculty perceptions examined through the utilization of an Analog Discovery Board by a consortium of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) universities. Presented is the process and outcomes resulting from the integration of a hand-held mobile technology into STEM education within a collaborative consortium of universities who promote its adoption, demonstrate how the hands-on pedagogical approach has been inserted into electrical engineering courses and their curriculum design along with improvements observed in student learning and engagement. Access to multiple contexts allowed a wider view of the impact of this mobile technology on the education of a diverse population in STEM related educational courses, researchers investigated across instructors, various content areas, and institutions.
