How can technology be used to identify and address gaps in student understanding of challenging course concepts or topics? 

Mohamed Abdelhafez will share how digital tools help him to know the students and which course concepts they are finding challenging in 8.01/8.02. He will also describe how he uses technology to explain difficult topics and to help students understand how to think through problems. Mohamed Abdelhafez is a lecturer in physics, and a member of the Physics Residential & Online Learning Lab and Physics Education Group.
