Wireless Network Support For Pedagogic Interaction

Wireless Network Support For Pedagogic Interaction
Wireless Network Support For Pedagogic Interaction
Abstract—Traditional face-to-face learning can benefit from a rich technological infrastructure functioning in real time. We have conceived, developed and used a software system, ANTS, Automated Notes Transfer System, which supports traditional pedagogic activities in an institution of higher education. ANTS resides as client and server on the personal computers of the teacher and learner, typically laptops brought temporarily into the lecture theatre. ANTS uses the wireless data communications network pervading the theatre and allows the teacher and learner to share educational material stored on the Internet. ANTS ensures the learner accesses the current version of the educational material. ANTS also allows the teacher and learner to collaborate in modifying the material as the learning activity progresses. Teacher and leaner can add, delete, and change text and graphics in response to discussion. Our use of ANTS confirms that it encourages learner-directed events during the activity. It also helps the learner in the cognitive domain of learning styles and facilitates group learning.
