Integrating iPads into Computer Science and IST Classes

This session will discuss the use of iPads in computer science and IST courses during 2015-2016. The use of iPads for computer programming and other activities was part of a gradual attempt to change these courses from an instructor-driven model to a student-driven model. It was thought that this technology would allow students to be more engaged with the material, more mobile in the classroom, and to more effectively utilize existing collaborative spaces. iPad-driven activities (e.g., flowchart creation with LucidChart, visualization with Codea Scratchpad) were designed to help students build problem-solving skills while providing them opportunities for collaborative learning. Apple TV was another tool used to allow students to share their work in real time with other members of their team as well as the entire class.

This session will describe the individual and collaborative activities students performed, the apps utilized, management challenges, and the lessons learned from integrating iPads into these courses. The session will also discuss the available student feedback and its impact on future integration into these courses. While some positive results and feedback were observed, the integration of iPads provided a number of important lessons on how iPads can be effectively leveraged.
