iPads in the junior high classroom: benefits, challenges, and recommended strategies
Technology, and specifically the iPad, is becoming more prevalent in American classrooms. Many schools are adopting one-to-one iPad initiatives, in which each student is issued an iPad for use in class and for assignments outside of school, with promises of enhancing student learning and increasing student engagement. This qualitative study aims to explore exactly how teachers can best utilize these mobile devices in the classroom so as to produce the best results with students. Classroom observations, teacher interviews, and analysis of data from surveys given to both students and staff contribute to findings of the benefits and challenges of iPads for student learning, and provide suggestions for teachers and administrators for implementation of an iPad program.
