Enhancing lecture presentation through tablet technology

Enhancing lecture presentation through tablet technology Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to describe a simple approach available to corporate finance instructors to enhance the lecture delivery through the use of “digital ink” and tablet technology, to increase engagement during the lecture and enhance the classroom experience. Design/methodology/approach – The purpose of this paper is to describe a simple approach available to corporate finance instructors to enhance the lecture delivery through the use of “digital ink” and tablet technology, to increase engagement during the lecture and enhance the classroom experience. Findings – Positive student satisfaction was documented with the majority of students finding that the new method of teaching has helped with their learning. While there was no substantial difference in the overall mean exam scores compared to previous teaching periods, there was an improvement in the ability of students to identify and summarise the different theories. Originality/value – Technology has created both a progress and a decline in helping students learn. The original blackboard method of instruction was considered outdated when PowerPoint presentations became the main method of lecture delivery. However, the ability of instructors to work through problems progressively can be diminished in slide presentations. This paper shows how technology has facilitated a shift back towards the original “chalk and talk” method of lecture delivery, where the “chalk” has been replaced with “digital ink” in an attempt to reinvigorate slide presentations and actively engage students more during the lecture. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Accounting Research Journal Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to describe a simple approach available to corporate finance instructors to enhance the lecture delivery through the use of “digital ink” and tablet technology, to increase engagement during the lecture and enhance the classroom experience. Design/methodology/approach – The purpose of this paper is to describe a simple approach available to corporate finance instructors to enhance the lecture delivery through the use of “digital ink” and tablet technology, to increase engagement during the lecture and enhance the classroom experience. Findings – Positive student satisfaction was documented with the majority of students finding that the new method of teaching has helped with their learning. While there was no substantial difference in the overall mean exam scores compared to previous teaching periods, there was an improvement in the ability of students to identify and summarise the different theories. Originality/value – Technology has created both a progress and a decline in helping students learn. The original blackboard method of instruction was considered outdated when PowerPoint presentations became the main method of lecture delivery. However, the ability of instructors to work through problems progressively can be diminished in slide presentations. This paper shows how technology has facilitated a shift back towards the original “chalk and talk” method of lecture delivery, where the “chalk” has been replaced with “digital ink” in an attempt to reinvigorate slide presentations and actively engage students more during the lecture.
