Abstract
  • The Tablets in Classrooms (TIC) program was initiated by the Corvallis School District (CSD) during the 2012-13 school year. TIC provides teachers and students in elementary and middle grades with Apple iPads as new pedagogical tools for teaching and learning. The school district contracted with Oregon State University’s Center for Research on Lifelong STEM Learning to explore if, how and when tablets support learning, based on the past three years of experiences from teachers, students, parents, pedagogical and technical support staff and administrators. The goal of the study was to identify key aspects of effective use of tablet devices and to assess the implications of tablet technology use in classrooms. This report is based on a district-wide teacher survey and a number of interviews and focus groups with teachers, students, parents and administrators, in an attempt to capture a variety of perspectives on the affordances and challenges of using tablets in and out of classrooms for the purpose of enhanced instruction and learning.
