Program Management System - 21st BCCE - OrganicPad: A Free-Form Structure Drawing Program

Workshop Title: OrganicPad: A Free-Form Structure Drawing Program
Descrption: Do your students have difficulties constructing Lewis structures? Do you wish you had a more meaningful way of providing your students feedback in how to construct them? This workshop will focus on the use of OrganicPad, an innovative computer-based structure drawing program for use in chemistry classrooms. The program provides a naturalistic interface where students may draw structures and reaction mechanisms without a potentially complicated interface that may both impose an additional cognitive load on the student and affect what the student draws. Specifically, participants will have the opportunity to explore OrganicPad’s teaching features including: (1) real-time student and instructor feedback; (2) the creation of interactive lessons and tutorials; and (3) its use for the teaching/practice of mechanism-drawing skills. We will also suggest teaching and learning activities stemming from our research on how students develop representational competence. Participants will be provided tablet-PC’s for use during this workshop and will be given complementary copies of the program for personal use.
