I have attended several sessions at the conference. My presentation was scheduled for Jan. 31. The session was attended by about 30 people. I have received feedback on my work and invitation for future research collaboration in Europe and South America. In this regard I have already taken initiatives to further work on my project in collaboration with the PBL research gourp at the ProBell: Problem Based Learning research group at the University of Tampere, Finland I have already submitted a tutorial proposal on Problem Based Learning Online with Timo Portimojarvi (researcher at ProBell) for International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies to be held in Santander, Cantabria, Spain from 1st to 5th July, 2008 We also plan to work on a journal paper based on our theoretical underpinnings and implementation of PBL. I have been invited to organize a workshop at the Problem-based Learning Summer School to be held in Dublin, Ireland from June 23rd-27th 2008. This is organized by the Irish PBL Network and The Centre for teaching and Learning, School of Education and Lifelong Learning, University College Dublin and at the Universidad nacional Agraria La Molina, Lima, Peru to present at a PBL consortium 2008. I intend to organize a PBL conference in the near future.en
dc.description.abstractThis article focuses on the introduction of wireless mobile technology for the collaborative group activities in problem based learning. In this study students have used Tablet PC to interact with each other and to collate the information for final presentation. This paper will discuss how introduction of the technology and embedding it in the curriculum enhances students’ performance. Students and teachers feedback and reflection on the use of the technology has been considered for future improvement in the course. Future implementation of various other tools developed particularly for interactive use of Tablet PC will be critically evaluated.en
