Abstract

The notion of problem-based physics laboratories enhanced by computer technology has been coined ?studio physics? (Wilson, 1994) and has been practised at various institutions for some time (Cummings, Marx, Thornton, & Kuhl, 1999; Williams, MacLatchy, Backman, & Retson, 1997). In recent years new technology tools have been available to supplement the standard use of computer probes and data-acquisition software in studio physics. This paper reports a quantitative/qualitative case study of the implementation of two emergent communication tools: (a) Silicon Chalk and (b) the Graphire? Tablet.
