iPad Program Information

Program to Bring iPads into the Classroom

The Addlestone Library, in partnership with Academic Affairs and the Teaching, Learning and Technology (TLT) department, sponsors an iPad program to provide members of our campus community access to a technologically rich environment that encourages technology literacy, information literacy and collaborative learning.

 Program Overview

iPad

Starting in January 2014, iPads became available for faculty and students working on a class project. The 60 iPad Airs,  cases, and charging cart  were purchased with funds from the Provost’s Office. The program was designed to provide up to 30 iPads per class for special projects.
      

Faculty may request these iPads for students to check out and use for up to 3 weeks, as a tool to enhance student learning in their course. 

Students and faculty will check out the iPads from the Library Access & Instruction desk.  The Library staff are happy to work with you on your projects and assignments to:

  • Promote student engagement in the classroom, the lab, or in the field
  • Assist small group collaboration in idea creation and sharing as well as information search, analysis, and visual representation
  • Provide access to and manipulation of digital content
  • Promote the innovative use of this technology.
  • Design a class related project, coordinate with faculty and serve as a resource to students. 

In addition, 5 iPads will be available to individual students, faculty and staff to check out for 3 days.
