|Abstract:||Many of the core concepts in earth science systems are complex and counter- intuitive, but well illustrated through imagery and/or animation. We have developed a new tool, "ImageQuiz," that uses wireless technologies to present images and provide a question requiring a point response. In the study presented here, we use Peer Instruction techniques (Mazur, 1997) in a large geosciences class and deliver ImageQuizes via wireless PocketPC computers. We will discuss development, implementation and learning outcomes.|
