Pepperdine iPad Research Study Results: iPad Use and Student Performance

Tuesday, February 14 | 2:30PM–4:30PM | Grand Ballroom Foyer
Session Type: ELI
This poster session will reveal the results of Pepperdine University's iPad Research Study. Last fall, researchers worked with faculty to tie the iPad's use to student learning outcomes and assessment. Using classroom observations, surveys, and focus groups, the research team compared the behaviors of students in the iPad section to students in the non-iPad section of the same course taught by the same faculty member. Finally, the researchers collected students' homework, test, and quiz grades to assess the performance of students in the iPad section and students in the non-iPad section. Attend this poster session to view the results of the study, to speak to the researcher, and to learn about best practices for measuring the impact of technology on student learning.

Learning Objectives:
*Understand the effect of iPad use on students' performance on course learning objectives
*Understand how to work with faculty to tie iPad use to course learning objectives
*Understand how the iPad was used effectively in Pepperdine classroom activities from the point of view of faculty and students who were video recorded for this study
