  title={The Effects of Using a Tablet PC on Teaching and Learning Processes},
  author={Fang Chen and James Sager and Gail Corbitt and Kent Sandoe},
This study compares the use of a Tablet PC in teaching with the use of an earlier generation of presentation technologies (e.g. overhead projectors, blackboards, PowerPoint) that are an integral part of a traditional classroom learning environment. Presentation technologies are used to facilitate instruction and learning by performing three major pedagogical functions: (1) demonstrating the process of problem solving; (2) providing visual aids; and (3) keeping a record of instructional content… Expand
Touch screen technology adoption and utilisation by educators in early childhood educational institutions
There is a significant gap in the body of knowledge in regards to touch screen technology in early childhood, particularly from a process perspective, and it is suggested that further research is required to understand the interplay between individual actions and organisational structural influences.
