I will share the results of a year-long doctoral study of the integration of iPads in curricula and pedagogy among middle school boys, including a summary of teachers’ views about the successes and challenges of mobile technology instruction. Particular attention will be given to how the initiative enhances students’ global perspectives and strengthens engagement in learning.
Also, findings of a study of the Saint Edmond’s Academy1:1 iPad Initiative will be discussed. I will describe how teachers integrate iPads with content and pedagogy in a 1:1 iPad initiative, the beliefs of the faculty with regard to the affordances and constraints of teaching with iPads, and how the teachers at Saint Edmond’s Academy foster students’ growth of a global perspective.
