Effective solutions for recording student work and peer feedback: the use of Adobe Connect and LiveScribe smart pens

Archive copy of a session I delivered at ALT-C 2012 in September 2012.
Abstract::
Today we are confronted with the reality of having to do more with less; as learners invest more heavily in their education and future, they both expect and rightly deserve innovation in the delivery of an exceptional student experience, yet educators are faced with the challenge of achieving this with reduced resources. The implementation of new technologies can be seen as a means to realising this challenge but, ‘simply capitalizing on new technology, however, is not enough; the new models must use these tools and services to engage students on a deeper level’ (Horizon Report, 2012) and these technological interventions also need to be efficient and sustainable.

During this interactive hybrid session we will present the background, approach and findings from a JISC funded project that explored the use of technologies to capture audio, video, handwritten notes and drawings. These technologies, specifically Adobe Connect and LiveScribe smart pens, were used to record student presentations and peer-feedback, on an accredited teaching development programme. These technologies were piloted to:

Establish more efficient and sustainable methods of capturing presentations and providing students with recordings of their work.
Improve student presentation skills.
Encourage deeper reflection to enhance student learning.
So far the feedback from learners and teaching staff has been very positive; we have however, identified some technical and policy challenges, which are leading us to explore alternatives, which will also be covered in the session.
The technologies will be demonstrated by the presenters, therefore parts of the session will be recorded; participants will have the opportunity to experiment with the smart pens and reflect upon the wider application of Adobe Connect, LiveScribe pens and similar technologies.

There will also be a structured discussion around the challenges of implementing Adobe Connect and the LiveScribe pens followed by recommendations on implementation.

The indicative timings for the session are as follows:
0-20mins Presentation and demonstration
20-40mins Practical workshop activity involving use of the technology
40-60mins Discussion and summary
This session will be of interest to conference participants who are keen to explore effective solutions to capture lectures, improve student presentation skills, enhance synchronous peer feedback processes and deepen student reflection, supported through the innovative use of sustainable technological interventions. Due to the participatory nature of this session and the availability of hardware, spaces are limited to 30 participants.

  3. 3. Present and demo
  4. 4. Project aims • Establish efficient and sustainable means of capturing presentations • Provide students with recordings of their work • Improve student presentation skills • Encourage deeper reflection & improve student learning
  5. 5. Implementation • Piloted with student-teachers on SDDU's accredited teacher training programmes: University of Leeds Teacher Award 1 & 2 • Phase 1: December 2011 smart pens • Phase 2: March 2012 smart pens and Adobe Connect
  6. 6. Implementation • Purchased HD webcams & LiveScribe smart pens (Connect was already being piloted on campus) • Short training session for the teaching team • Adobe Connect to record & review student teacher micro-teach (used with the webcams) • LiveScribe smart pens for student teachers to record the feedback they received from the group • Policy challenges: data protection, performance rights, IPR • Technical challenges
  7. 7. Evaluation (smart pens) • Captured feedback in December 2011 & March 2012 • Smart Pens considered easy to use • Concept of recording feedback useful • Student teachers in 3 faculties adopted use of smart pens in teaching practice (MaPs, PVAC & Arts) • Some considered pens as 'gimmick' • Ergonomic issues being reported
  8. 8. Impact • Don't expect widespread implementation of smart pens (cost) • Alternative means of capturing audio available • Discussions led to consideration of other use of smart pens e.g. Supervision, research • Highlighted some policy implications - SDDU supporting the University with resolving these • Explored alternatives Adobe Connect for recording presentations • Continuing to use smart pens in other areas of the courses
