Smart phones and tablet PCs are very popular nowadays. Many schools use these new tools for teaching and learning. The e-Learning Technology Development Laboratory of the EEE Department had developed a mobile application called iClass. This tool can facilitate teachers to conduct interactive classes through different mobile devices. Students can share their ideas and express their views by drawing pictures or entering keywords. The students' works can be instantly sent to the lecture screen through the WiFi. Students can then learn from their peers through the peer review function. The iClass system also supports an editable e-book for assignment submission and 2D barcode to facilitate field trip or technical visit. Examples on how teachers can use iClass for in-class interactive teaching are carefully considered. Lastly, innovative pedagogy models are also being evolved to cope with many possible new changes.
