The Best of Both Worlds: WWW Enhanced In-Class Instruction
G.M. Novak, E.T. Patterson 2000 Paper presented at IASTED International Conference on Computers and Advanced Technology in Education, May 24-27, 2000 Cancun, Mexico
This paper introduces Just-in-Time Teaching (JiTT), a method that strives to implement a more active learning environment than lecture based classes. JiTT uses the world wide web to post student assignments, pre-class warm-up exercises, post-class puzzles, enrichment pages (What is Physices Good For?), and other instructional material. Some goals of JiTT are to maximize the classroom session, structure out-of-class learning, and help all students leave the class with the maximum amount of retained knowledge. This paper was presented at the 2000 IASTED International Conference on Computers and Advanced Technology in Education.
