Using smart phones to enhance undergraduate learning in laboratory classes

Joaquim Perez-Losada, Joaquim Fort


We explore how mobile technology can improve undergraduate students’ learning experiences. Introductory Physics courses are often challenging for undergraduate students enrolled in Engineering. We propose a classroom activity that combines active learning of the principles of physics with communication skills, team work capability and enhanced active learning. Students use their cell phones to record and send short digital video clips. The goal was to record a short video (2-3 minutes long) with the aim that anyone will know how to perform the lab experience just by watching it. We discuss its results and potential for other teachers who consider using cell phones as powerful learning tools.
