Faculty Showcase: Using Mobile Tablets in the Higher Education Classroom to Enhance Teaching and Learning

Teacher Education graduate students try out their new HTC EVO View tablets.

What happens when you turn two classes full of students loose with 4G/WiFi tablets for an entire quarter?

To find out, join OHIO faculty Teresa Franklin, Jeffrey Anderson, and Gene Geist, graduate students Yanyan Sun and Nick Yinger, and Sarah Rist of OIT on Monday, April 30 from 2:00 - 3:30 pm in the Friends of the Library Room (Alden 319) for an Academic Technologies Faculty Showcase:

Using Mobile Tablets in the Higher Education Classroom to Enhance Teaching and Learning

  • Monday, April 30
  • 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
  • Alden Library 319

In the current study, we examined how the use of a mobile device – the HTC EVO Tablet – enhanced teaching and learning in an undergraduate business course and in a graduate teacher education course at Ohio University. Through a collaborative partnership between Ohio University faculty, the Office of Information Technology, Sprint, and HTC, students and instructors received an HTC Tablet. Throughout the courses, we examined how students interacted with the HTC tablet to work on assignments, blogs, and readings, both locally and at a distance, using Adobe Connect. We also collected usage statistics, self-efficacy information, and qualitative feedback to determine the effectiveness of the Tablet as a teaching and learning tool.
