The iPad Goes to School: Mobile-Touch Technology in Educational Settings

Thursday, June 02 | 10:30AM–11:15AM | Grand Ballroom Salons A-C
Session Type: Professional Development
Information technology is a growing area of importance in teaching and education. Its role in helping students and teachers meet learning and literacy goals has been historically grounded in the personal computer world but is beginning to focus on mobile, cloud-based, multimedia, and touch technologies. A key example of the confluence of these technologies is the iPad. This presentation will examine potential needs and uses of these technologies in higher education and school environments through research completed with undergraduate preservice teachers. Grounded in research, this presentation will include use cases, implementation options, and student outcomes and observations.
