Digital Pens & Paper

  1. 1. Empirical study to evaluate the use of Digital Pens and its associated technologies to enhance the assessment feedback process Innovations in Technology Supported Learning (ITSL) Rapid innovation in the use of Emerging Technologies to enhance educational practice 2009-10
  2. 2. Where the project idea came from? 2 • Communicating with academics • Analysing the situation • ‘ViewFinder’ University student survey • Levels 4 and 5 • National Student Survey (NSS) • Level 6 “ ....I can’t keep staring at the monitor for hours and hours to mark and give feedback on each assignment.... especially when I have more than 8 modules to mark...I prefer to use an alternative medium!...I am more comfortable with paper as I can carry it everywhere with me”
  3. 3. Current practice 3 Student Lecturer Digital submission Non-Digital Feedback Admin Role VLE Print, mark & feedback
  4. 4. Enhanced practice 4 Student Lecturer Digital submission VLE VLEDigital Feedback Print, mark & feedback
  5. 5. Project Rational • Feedback immediacy – Chickering & Gamson (1987) • Practitioners engagement • Meeting lecturer needs – Marking style – Health and Safety 5
  6. 6. Project Team Lesley Drumm Award Leader Faculty of Computing, Engineering and Technology Students “Applied Research Methods and Professional Development” module Hamza Badenjiki Learning Development Specialist Academic Development Unit 6
  7. 7. Aims 7 Students experience Staff engagement Reduce administrative burdens Digital Pens & Paper evaluation
  8. 8. Original Methodology Semester 1 group will receive a paper-based feedback Semester 2 group will receive an electronic feedback Gather students evaluation feedback through a questionnaire and interviews. Gather tutors evaluation through interviews. 8
  9. 9. Modified Methodology • Due to the delay of the equipment's arrival, the methodology was modified. • The tutor had to experiment the technology with semester 2 group Gather students evaluation feedback through a questionnaire and interviews. Gather tutors evaluation through interviews. 9
  10. 10. • Pens delivery • Training session to staff 10 Staff Training
  11. 11. Hardware - Digital Pens and Paper technology 11
  12. 12. Software – ‘fastdox’ 12
  13. 13. Evaluation • Tutors perspective: – Benefits: • Personalised feedback • No changes for working practice • Short learning curve • Portable and convenient • Cheaper than a tablet PC • Ability to view document on-line as handwriting – Limitations • The pen is rather chunky and is strange to write with initially • Battery life • Pens are easy to lose • If the memory in the pen is full, data may be over-written • Printing setup issue 13
  14. 14. Students perspective: • Benefits: • The students gave positive feedback about the speed of receipt of feedback • The majority of students approved the new method of receiving the feedback • Nearly all the students felt that the new method did not affect the personalisation aspect • Limitation: • Screen Reader issue • Clarity of handwriting 14 Evaluation
  15. 15. Further Development • Text recognition feature should be developed in ‘fastdox’ application – “Inkwork” • Workflow functionality has to be enhanced to enable tutors to submit all documents from ‘fastdox’ to a shared drive • Integration with Blackboard 15
  16. 16. Lessons Learned • Emailing the feedback sheets through Blackboard was the quickest option • For future similar projects, the University procedures should be streamlined. 16
  17. 17. Would the technology be useful in other disciplines? • When lecturers want to mark paper assignments (for modules with small numbers) • For marking presentations in class – the sheet can be handed immediately to students and a copy is stored on the digital pen 17
  18. 18. Dissemination • The outcomes of the project was disseminated to teaching staff across the University – Project Blog – Academic Development Unit events – Online case study 18
  19. 19. Conclusion • Digital Pens and Paper technology was evaluated from various stakeholders perspectives. • Students: This new approach by and large enhanced students experience, they received a rapid and convenient feedback without the need to travel, • Staff: It allowed further mobility and convenience, it increased their engagement with the feedback process • Admin: It also reduced the administrative burdens associated with providing feedback to students. 19
