Teacher’s use of iPads in higher education

Teacher’s use of iPads in higher education | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

Teacher’s use of iPads in higher education.  Daniel Churchill & Tianchong Wang

 


Mobile devices (e.g. iPads or galaxy tab) are increasingly being used in educational contexts. There has been growing investment in higher education institutions in Hong Kong by the HKSAR Education Bureau in relation to educational uses of mobile technology. However, current research into educational applications of this technology is limited. This article reports results of a qualitative study that investigated how higher education teachers use iPads to facilitate their practice. The study results provide insight into both the educational affordances of iPad technology and the ways in which teachers’ personal or private theories mediate these affordances. The study outcomes contribute to theoretical understanding of higher education teacher changes through adoption of mobile technology. Furthermore, the outcomes provide a set of recommendations for applications of iPads and similar technologies in higher education and ways to support teachers to effectively adopt such technology in their practices.

Teachers Barely Used iPads From Controversial $500 Million Contract In Los Angeles

Teachers Barely Used iPads From Controversial $500 Million Contract In Los Angeles | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
Last year, the Los Angeles school district granted teachers iPads loaded with Pearson curriculum in a controversial deal that was later voided. A new report observed most teachers weren’t using them.
Kim Flintoff's insight:

If the devices were there then there is no reason they couldn't be used regularly in an active, student-centred, inquiry driven model of learning engagement.  Set aside all the riduclous excuses about missing "content" and ask what really stopped teachers picking them up and putting them in the hands of learners.  This is the 21st Century - there is no valid reason for first world qualified teachers to ignore the opportunities afforded by meangingful technological engagement.
