  19. 19. Technological Hurdles<br />Tablet PCs <br />Consistent wireless internet connection<br />Time constraints/benefits<br />Stylus vs. pen and virtual binder vs. paper<br />“…they (tablets) could be a very distracting because it (takes) your mind away off lectures…when lectures becomes boring I tend to go on websites which is the worst thing I can do …”<br />
  20. 20. Student Response<br />“…I actually did my work and it was done right and organized which helped for studying.”<br />“…I tend to pay attention more thus doing better in work and tests”<br />“…students can share answers anonymously, we can correct each other’s work.” <br />“I found that the shy students were more comfortable participating through the tablet and shared control in dyknow than standing up and speaking”.<br />
