Abstract


As technologies develop, the tools used in classrooms to support student learning are ever evolving. While this change can provide avenues for new exploration and enhanced educational experiences, critically assessing these developments is essential to ensure that there are added educational benefits to these new technologies and tools. This paper details an electronic notebook that was implemented in select sections of a first-year engineering course to replace the use of traditional paper notebooks. While the implementation seemed successful and there were anticipated benefits to switching from a paper to electronic based system, critical assessment data based on good assessment practices was collected to truly measure the impact of the change and new technology use. In this paper, we report on the electronic notebooks themselves and the assessment results.
