Using Mobile Technology in a Construction Management “Hands-On” Laboratory
This study discusses the introduction and use of the iPad mobile device in a freshman level construction management “hands-on” materials and methods laboratory. The devices are incorporated into the course in four ways: (1) for plan reading; (2) for RFI documentation, including the development of the RFI, highlighting of plans, and attachment of photos; (3) for presentation and documentation of “Tool Box” safety meetings; and (4) for documenting Daily Reports. This paper discusses the use of mobile technologies in a “hands-on” laboratory setting, the challenges of the incorporation, lessons learned, and student reactions to the use of the mobile device.
