iPad Project

In the fall of 2011, the Office of the Provost provided funding for an iPad pilot project.  Three faculty members had the opportunity to distribute a number of iPads to their students to use throughout the initial semester.  As of Fall 2013, a total of 20 faculty have participated in this project.

Each semester, faculty may apply to participate in this project.  The CTLT will email faculty each semester to inform them of how and when to apply to participate in this project.  Participants in this project are asked to provide a formal presentation to all faculty the following semester.

Below are videos and other information from presentations faculty made to campus following integrating iPads into their classrooms.

"Lessons Learned from the Use of i-Pad Technology to Meet Practicum Requirements"

Ann GeorgeThe purpose of this presentation is to describe a pilot project that implemented i-Pad technology to achieve practicum requirements. During the Fall 2011 semester, seven practicum students were assigned University i-Pads that they used to complete assignments, instruct students, video lessons and participate in instructional coaching sessions. As a result of this project, many lessons were learned and these experiences will be shared with attendees. A simulated instructional coaching session, using face-time technology, will also be demonstrated along with examples of i-Pad, i-Pod and i-Phone touch apps that can be used for differentiating instruction.

Chris Huitt iPad Pilot ProjectReview of student experiences using the iPad in their university classes. 24 students were issued iPads for a semester and observed on how well they could use them in all of their classes. Discussion will be on the most beneficial apps and software for both viewing and creating content for the iPad. Survey results and overall observations discussed, along with future applications in the classroom.
