Chalkboards and piles of handouts are quickly becoming ancient teaching tools. In todays high-tech and fast-paced society, it is imperative that we are proficient in the use of computers and other revolutionary electronic devices. Specifically, teaching science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines with current technology can enhance learning. In order to understand current student perceptions on the use of technology when learning science subjects at Coppin State University, 166 students participated in a survey. This survey included questions over the use of automated response systems (clickers), the Tegrity lecture capture program, and the Blackboard course management system. Results demonstrate students had an overall positive view of these technologies and in particular would like to see more of these technologies implemented in other courses.
