TAILIEUCHUNG - Graphics tablet technology in second year thermal engineering teaching

This paper is aimed at engineering instructors considering graphics tablet technology for their teaching set up. The objective is to provide useful information and guidance by sharing experiences made using a graphics tablet for lecturing an undergraduate course on Thermal Engineering. | Journal of Technology and Science Education GRAPHICS TABLET TECHNOLOGY IN SECOND YEAR THERMAL ENGINEERING TEACHING Antonio Carrillo, José Manuel Cejudo, Fernando Domínguez, Eduardo Rodríguez Grupo de Energética. Departamento de Máquinas y Motores Térmicos. Universidad de Málaga Spain acarrillo@ Received July 2013 Accepted October 2013 Abstract Graphics tablet technology is well known in markets such as manufacturing, graphics arts and design but it has not yet found widespread acceptance for university teaching. A graphics tablet is an afordable teaching tool that combines the best features from traditional and new media. It allows developing a progressive, interactive lecture (as a traditional blackboard does). However, the tablet is more versatile, being able to integrate graphic material such as tables, graphs, colours, etc. In addition to that, lecture notes can be saved and posted on a course website. This paper is aimed at engineering instructors considering graphics tablet technology for their teaching set up. The objective is to provide useful information and guidance by sharing experiences made using a graphics tablet for lecturing an undergraduate course on Thermal Engineering. Keywords – graphics tablet, undergraduate, engineering, teaching tools ---------- 1 INTRODUCTION A graphics tablet is a computer input device that enables a user to hand-draw images and graphics, similar to the way a person draws images with a pencil and paper. First precursors to the modern graphics tablets date back to the end of the 19 th century with the Teleautograph patent by Gray (. Patent , 815, 1888). However, it was not until the middle of 20 th century that devices similar to contemporary tablets emerged (Dimond, 1957; Davis & Ellis, 1964). A comprehensive annotated bibliography can be found in Ward (.). In the website of one of the main manufacturers (Wacom, .) there is a timeline with the development of these devices in the past decades. .
