Student learning improves when faculty use learning-centered teaching practices, and a symbiotic relationship exists between technology and learning-centered education. One technological tool, the tablet PC, offers university faculty a powerful way to enhance student learning. The seven principles for good practice in undergraduate education offer a framework for learning-centered education, and this paper illustrates the seven principles through research data focused on innovative and pedagogically appropriate uses of tablet PCs. Examples include assessment research data from MIT, DePauw, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, University of Washington, Pace University, University of Michigan and Virginia Tech.
