Abstract: This undergraduate action research study included designing, co-teaching, and researching a Project-based Physics course. The purpose of the study was to discover if an engaging PBL physics classroom supported by iTouches and iPads would develop critical thinking skills while improving communication, collaboration and innovation in students. Participants of this session will learn if students developed critical thinking, communication, collaboration and innovations skills; how iTouches and iPads were used by students to solve physics projects; and lessons learned in developing and implementing a PBL physics course supported by iTouches and iPads.
