  • The in-class iPad assignments made sure you were paying a8en9on.

    I loved how it saved paper and space. All the informa9on for my course was saved in one li8le iPad.

    I was able to ac9vely draw things in class which helped with my understanding of the material.

    Student Comments

    Instead of trying to hurry and copy down notes, we could make notes on the PowerPoint we downloaded. That way you get more out of your lectures!

  • The worst part was that I had to buy it while I already had Samsung tablet.

    Not Without Challenges

    The teacher didn't use the iPads. The lectures were on PowerPoint but they were not at all interac9ve. It was basically pointless to have one except for the tests.

  • Assessment: Introductory Biology Class #1

    Pre, post-test of both methods

    Correct answers rose from from 36% (no iPad) to 92% (iPad)

    Results demonstrate better understanding of topic

  • Tradi&onal class: students study examples of good and bad paragraphs; prac9ce wri9ng them, and turn them in

    iPad class: instructor uses Nearpod app to push out good and bad paragraphs; students then asked to prac9ce wri9ng paragraphs on their iPads

    Results: Inconsistent and insignificant; the quality of wri9ng did not improve systema9cally. Instructor noted benefit of keeping students a8en9on
